Where Students Come First
GT Referral & Identification Process
Of utmost importance to the success of gifted and talented services is the identification of students who possess unusual potential or high ability in the areas of specific academic aptitude and general intellectual ability. Assessment includes qualitative and quantitative measures collected from multiple sources.
Students referred in grades K-12 shall be assessed and, if identified, provided services. Data and procedures ensure that all populations of the district have access to assessments.
Students are assessed for the gifted and talented program according to the following guidelines.
Teachers, counselors, parents, students or other interested parties may refer students to be assessed at any time. Assessment will take place during the spring semester.
Written parental consent for assessment is required.
Students previously identified as gifted in another school district shall be reassessed within 30 days of enrollment.
Secondary students are assessed on request.
A period of one year must elapse before a student may be reassessed.
