Gifted & Talented
The testing process for Gifted and Talented (G/T) services is underway. The referral period for this year ended October 26th.
Parents will receive testing notifications in late November/early December. The placement process takes approximately two months. It is our policy to test only once per year. The G/T screen for second grade has been cancelled for this year. We will instead screen all students in third grade next year.
We are committed to providing challenging learning experiences for students with exceptional intellectual and creative thinking abilities.
