Gifted & Talented



    Greeting Parents,


    The Parent Referral window for Gifted Eligibility Testing is now open

    criterion of a score at the 80th percentile or higher on the district-administered

    MAP Growth test in either Reading or Math to receive the gifted eligibility 

    assessments.  Please click the link below and submit one form for each child.
