Student Support Services

Sandi Giddens

Student support services encompass Gifted Services, Response to Intervention (RTI), Hospital/Homebound (HHB) Services, and Section 504. Our goal is to assist school based personnel with implementing a delivery model of instruction that will maximize student achievement.

Gifted Services 

The Worth County School District’s gifted program is funded by the State of Georgia. In Georgia, a gifted education student is defined as one who demonstrates a high degree of intellectual and/or creative ability(ies), exhibits an exceptionally high degree of motivation, and/or excels in specific academic fields, and who needs special instruction and/or special ancillary services to achieve at levels commensurate with his or her ability(ies).

The following gifted program models are available for Worth County School District students:

Kindergarten-grade 2:  Gifted Cluster Model

Grades 3-5:  Gifted Cluster Model and Gifted Resource Model

Grades 6-12:  Advanced Content Model

            Please review Worth County’s Gifted Services Manual for more information concerning gifted programming:

Response to Intervention Resources

Section 504


Hospital/Homebound (HHB)

HHB teachers will provide academic assistance that enables students to keep up with academic responsibilities while at home for medical needs. It is the goal of HHB staff to work closely with the family and the student's school to facilitate a smooth and successful transition for the student upon returning to a regular school program.
