Gifted and Talented Program 2020-21

The Gifted and Talented (GT) Referral Window for submitting nominations will be September 21st thru October 2nd. Nomination forms will be made available when the referral window opens.

Important GT Information

For students that are currently identified as GT or Talent Explore, services will continue to be delivered through the GT Cluster model of instruction. This means that a GT certified teacher will be providing enrichment and appropriate content and instruction recommended by our district advanced academics department to your child. Teachers will provide a GT service summary at the end of each semester to update you on what is being offered in the classroom.

Due to the school year starting virtually and possibly continuing in that format for many students after the first couple of weeks of school, the GT nomination and testing calendar and procedures for the 2020-2021 school year have been adjusted. The following are important dates to know if you are interested in having your child take part in the GT/Talent Explore identification process:

September 21st-October 2nd GT referral window (Parents and Teachers can submit nominations)

October 5th-13th Parent observation forms will be sent home and collected

October 13th-30th Teacher observations, assessments, work samples collection

November 2nd-20th Campus GT Committee reviews data/makes placement decisions

November 30th-December 16th Parents notified via letter of placement decisions

January 6th Services for newly identified GT and Talent Explore students starts
