GILLETTE — Campbell County schools are spending more than $1 million a year to help students identified as gifted and talented.
The GATE program is offered for qualifying students from elementary to high school levels.
There are 260 district students involved in the program this school year and 13 teachers who work with them.
Those teachers also work with 753 students ranging from kindergarten to seniors in high school on a variety of enrichment projects.
Campbell County school trustee Joe Lawrence said that the district is spending a lot of money but it's worth it as long as the students are put on the program's path.
