Identification Process

Identification Process

Identification for gifted services is ongoing and is organized into three cycles a year - one for each grading period. In each cycle, students are nominated for consideration for gifted services by a teacher, parent, self, principal, or community member. Once a student is nominated, the school develops a profile for that nominee. The profile incorporates input from school personnel and the student's family and includes school ability test scores, evidence of exceptional performance and products, school achievement, and evidence of critical thinking skills, creativity, and problem solving. A school identification committee consisting of the principal/designee, the gifted resource teacher, and one of the student's classroom teachers reviews the student profile and determines each student's eligibility, and makes recommendation about appropriate services for all nominated students.
