The newly expanded gifted and talented programs at New York City’s public schools will open applications on May 31st, with additional elementary school offerings so that students in every district will have a local option.

In April, Mayor Eric Adams announced that he was adding another 100 spots to the 2,400 seats in the kindergarten gifted and talented program, and creating a third-grade option for an initial 1,000 students. There are currently about 938,000 public school students.

“By expanding our gifted and talented program to all New York City districts, we are giving every young person an opportunity to grow, to learn, to explore their talents and imagination, and we are making sure no child is left behind,” Adams said in a press release Tuesday. “Working with families, teachers, and community leaders, we were able to make this expansion happen, and now students from every school district will be able to access a gifted and talented program.”

The new third-grade track will allow selected students to attend gifted and talented programs at 44 elementary schools, most of which are receiving accelerated classes for the first time. The city also added seven elementary schools to the list of 85 schools hosting kindergarten gifted and talented classes.

Adams’s broad expansion of gifted and talented programs is a drastic departure from former Mayor Bill de Blasio’s attempts to eliminate the city's gifted and talented programs in his efforts to address persistent segregation and inequity in the school system.

Critics have long argued that the gifted and talented programs have led to segregated schools where Black and Latino students were underrepresented. But parents in favor of gifted and talented say the school system shouldn’t hold back accelerated learners.

The Department of Education will host online information sessions on Tuesday, Thursday and June 1st, with live interpretation in Arabic, Bangla, Chinese, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, Spanish, and Urdu.

The application process for kindergarten now depends on teacher recommendations after de Blasio eliminated the controversial test for 4-year-olds, and the DOE said Tuesday that 89% of all pre-K programs have already submitted their nominations.

The top 10% of every school’s second graders based on their grades in the four core areas - English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies - will be invited to apply for the gifted and talented third-grade track.

City officials said more seats can be added if schools see interest from families. Admitted students will have priority for their district’s gifted and talented program, though they will be able to apply to other gifted and talented programs.
