2021 Winter/Spring Eligibility Process
Winter/Spring Gifted Evaluations Delayed
Due to COVID-19, the gifted evaluation process for winter/spring, 2021 will be delayed. The Gifted Education Department is currently developing a plan to evaluate this year’s 3rd - 5th grade students when it is safe and equitable to do so.
Please check this webpage (school webpage) and/or the LCPS Gifted and Talented webpage (https://www.lcps.org/Page/211705) for the most up-to-date information. As soon as the 2021 gifted evaluation timeline and referral window is established, it will be posted at these locations.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Parents may also access parent resources and enrichment resources on the NAGC website to find challenging activities.
