There was a high number of students in the Rochester Public School system that qualified for the highly gifted program for the coming year.

A proposal to expand the program by offering more sections was brought to the School Board recently and School Superintendent Michael Munoz talked about the proposed expansion on Rochester's Good Morning with Rich Peterson and Kim David last week on KROC AM..

On February 7, the board will decide whether or not to expand the program.  The original date for the random selection process for the highly gifted program was to be January 20. The selection process will be moved to February 8, 2017.

Parents will be notified via email on February 8 and 9.
