The Seymour Community School District (SCSD) embraces the great diversity of our student population and recognizes the educational needs of diverse learners, including the gifted and talented. The purpose of this plan is to ensure that gifted and talented students are offered a continuum of programming through a common system of identification, extensions, differentiation, and services.
The mission of the Seymour Community School District is to create a cooperative community of people committed to constantly improving learning environments that enable students to demonstrate their uniqueness as total persons who are active learners, caring members of society, creative artists, ethical stewards, involved citizens, and productive workers.
We believe that the Seymour Community School District exists to assist all students to develop to their fullest capacity, for their own benefit and the benefit of their community, their state, their nation, and the world.
