In order for your child to be evaluated for gifted services in the spring of 2015 (for gifted services beginning in the fall of 2015), you must give your child's SEARCH teacher a signed referral form no later than 3:00 PM on Monday, March 2, 2015.
For Parents of 4th and 5th Grade Students:
We are currently accepting parent referrals from parents of 4th and 5th graders wishing to have their children evaluated for gifted education services. Students can be referred one time each school year - please contact your child's SEARCH teacher if he or she was evaluated during the 2013-2014 school year before sending in a referral form.
For Parents of 3rd Grade Students:
Students with qualifying test scores on the CogAT and/or NNAT will receive a District Referral via US Mail in mid-February (on or around February 17, 2015). With parent permission (via a signed referral form), these students will be evaluated for gifted services. Parents of students who did not receive a District Referral letter but who wish to have their children evaluated, may submit a parent referral form to their child's SEARCH teacher beginning on February 17, 2015.
