Gifted & Talented
Universal Screener: All 3rd & 5th grade students will be screened in September using the Cog-AT. Once scores are received by the school, students scoring in the 95 percentile or higher will be evaluated further via collecting work samples, and input from parents, teachers, and the student.

Referral Testing: Students in grades K-12 can be referred for Gifted and Talented Evaluation by filling out the Referral Form on the left, and turning it into the grade level coordinator or homeroom teacher. Once referred, students will be assessed based on student aptitude, achievement, performance, interest, and we'll gather input from parents, teachers, and the student. Cog-AT is required by referral as part of the evaluation process for students in grade 1, 2, & 4, and can only be done in the Fall. Please email the school level GT Coordinator to request testing.
Advanced Learning Plans (ALPs)
ALPs are written within the first 30 days of each school year, and distributed to parents and teachers by the grade level coordinators. If you have not yet been contacted by your student's ALP coordinator, please reach out to them.
What is the purpose of an ALP? Advanced learning plans are used to set both academic and affective learning goals for students to ensure that they are continuously being challenged at school and beyond. Plans may outline options for advanced coursework, college classes, or enrichment activities so our Gifted and Talented students meet their potential. The formal plan is also a useful method of communicating between all stakeholders in your student's education: parents, teachers, and students. Click here to read more!
