Gifted and Talented

Dear Families and Students,

Welcome to the Gifted and Talented Page for the Washington County School District! I look forward to working with students and families throughout the year. My goal for the Gifted and Talented Program here in Washington County is to provide quality programming for families and students, while addressing the specific needs of gifted students in classrooms across our district.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or comments at sarah.carey@washington.kyschools.us. Once again, I look forward to establishing positive relationships in the county that I call home.duketip-webbadge

Sarah Carey
