Identification and Assessment Grades K-5

Elementary Gifted and Talented Program

Students in the gifted program participate in a Pull-Out program one to two times a week.  In GT class they participate in research based projects that provide many challenging learning opportunities.  The exact schedule for GT instruction will be posted at each campus.  Students qualify for GT services using a combination of qualitative and quantitative measures to include a non-verbal intelligence test, achievement test, portfolios, and parent/teacher observations.  The campus Screening and Identification Committee reviews and evaluates all of the screening criteria for each nominated student.

Fall Identification and Assessment is complete.
