The Department of Education has decided to do away with the Gifted and Talented Program at P.S. 29.

A DOE spokesperson says enrollment at the school has increased 47 percent since 2008.

In order to make room for its zoned students, P.S. 29 will no longer offer the program.

A new Gifted and Talented program will be offered at P.S. 60 in Graniteville.

Some parents who have children in the program say the biggest issue would be getting their children to another school.

The elimination of the program only affects incoming students.

Older students in the program will be allowed to continue.
