Gifted and Talented Screening for Current Fifth Grade Students
Students in fifth grade who are not currently identified for the elementary Challenge program have the opportunity to be screened for Gifted and Talented Program with service to begin in the fall of sixth grade. Secondary gifted program options are available in English, reading, mathematics, science, and social studies. Students may be screened in any or all of these content areas.
Letters to 5th Grade Parents have been sent home. Parents interested in referring their child for secondary Gifted and Talented screening need to complete a Secondary Parent Checklist and return to the elementary campus by September 21, 2017.
Screening will occur during the months of October through December. Parents will be notified of the placement decision by U.S. mail in January.
