Eligibility Notices
 Referrals for students new to LCPS are due October 9th
Determining eligibility for gifted services begins with a referral.  The process of gathering information from teachers, gathering student work for the portfolio, and testing (if necessary) takes time.  Since the division level committee reads the portfolios in December, SEARCH and SPECTRUM teachers will not have enough time to prepare the portfolios for students whose referrals are received after the October 9th deadline.  While SEARCH and SPECTRUM teachers will gather   information in a timely manner, the portfolios for the students with referrals received after October 9th will not be read until February.
The first step in appealing the ineligible decision is to notify the Supervisor of Gifted Education in writing. There is an Appeals Form that can be mailed or emailed to Parents have 10 days after receiving the letter notifying them of the ineligible decision.
Next, parents should contact the SEARCH or SPECTRUM teacher to reveiw the student's file to determine which criteria (testing, teacher/classroom observation, or student work) was not in support of gifted services. This will help parents determine what they should submit to the Appeals Committee.
The Gifted Education office will notify the parents of the date the Appeals Committee will review their appeal. All materials to be considered by the committee must be received by the Gifted Office by that date.
Parents wishing to provide new testing scores provided by a Virginia licensed psychologist may need to reschedule their appeals date. Please contact the Gifted Education office.
