The referral deadline for the fall assessment period for the
2013-2014 school year is
June 15, 2013.
Many opportunities are available for students in kindergarten through 12th grade to nurture exceptional abilities. Gifted Intervention Specialists work in all classrooms and provide small group support for our students.
Elementary: Gifted resource teachers at the elementary school work directly with classroom teachers and students to design opportunities to meet the needs of students with accelerated abilities. Experiences are provided both within the classroom and in small groups outside the classroom. Additional information regarding program options at the elementary level are available at the link below entitled District Policy for Identification of and Services for Students who are Gifted.
Middle School: Accelerated programs in math and English begin at the middle school. Students identified in the areas of Superior Cognitive and/or Creative Thinking Ability can participate in Creative Thinking classes with the Gifted intervention Specialist in 6th grade, Jason Project in 7th grade, and Adventures in Learning in 8th grade.
High School: Honors and Advanced Placement level classes are available. The Gifted Intervention Specialist collaborates with students, staff and parents to provide additional opportunities including mentorships and courses outside the campus as possible options to serve the needs of individual students.
Please note: In compliance with the Ohio Operating Standards, we offer assessment opportunities two times per school year. Referrals received by June 15 will be included in the fall testing period; referrals received between June 15 and December 15 will be included in the Winter testing period.
