In preparation for the LCPS gifted screening and identification process, which was postponed last spring due to Covid-19, 4th grade students will participate in weekly talent development lessons and independent learning activities between November and January. These lessons and activities are specifically designed to nurture and support students' creative thinking and problem-solving skills--and to expose them to the types of tasks that will be part of the gifted eligibility process.
The gifted resource teachers will also work closely with 4th and 5th grade classroom teachers to share activities that enrich and extend the core curriculum for students who need additional challenges and rigor this fall.
The LCPS Gifted Education Department understands that families will have questions about this process. Special presentations will be available for families in late September and early October. The presentations will address the 2021-2022 gifted screening and identification process. Please check the website below for county-wide updates.
