Gifted Identification Process FAQs

A parent/guardian, professional educator, community member, self, or peer may refer a student for a Gifted Referral. Referrals are accepted in writing by the school’s Gifted Identification Coordinator, Mrs. Jefferson, during the following windows:

October 9-26, 2018 – Referrals accepted for Third, Fourth, and Fifth grade students

January 3-18, 2019 – Referrals accepted for Kindergarten, First, and Second grade students

Parents/Guardians must send an email or submit a request in writing to Mrs. Jefferson during the referral window for their child’s grade level.  Please indicate if you would like to refer your child for language arts, math, or both areas.  Mrs. Jefferson will send an Academic Referral Form and Parent/Guardian Questionnaire home to be completed and returned. The parent questionnaire is also available online.
