Kindergarten GT Service

  • Kindergarten students identified for GT service participate in the elementary GT program, Challenge, for 60 minutes per week beginning the week of March 1. The kindergarten GT curriculum introduces students to creative and productive thinking skills. Students identified for GT service in kindergarten join the elementary pull-out program, Challenge, for one day per week in 1st grade.

    Parents of kindergarten students receive information during the fall semester regarding screening for the GT program. To request GT screening, parents must return the Kindergarten Parent Checklist by the published deadline in the fall. Kindergarten parents are also invited to attend a Kindergarten GT information session held each year in early October.

    The screening process begins in October and continues through February. Parents receive notification letters through U.S. mail by the end of February. Kindergarten GT service begins the week of March 1.
