You will need your student’s Power School number to complete the form. The forms are accepting responses until September 30, 2020.

All students will be screened with the Reading and Mathematics Inventory the first few weeks of school. Additional testing may be required in November and beyond.

Gifted and talented students may be found within any racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic group; within genders; and within populations with disabilities. Gifted and talented identification uses three dimensions: A. Reasoning Abilities, B. High Achievement in Reading and/or mathematical area(s), and C. Intellectual/Academic Performance. To meet the state criteria for gifted and talented identification, students must meet the criteria in two of three dimensions (typically).

No private testing is accepted for GT eligibility, but the results may be considered for referral purposes.
