• 3rd Gifted Resource Program 

      ALL THIRD GRADERS receive gifted resource lessons on a bi-weekly basis. 

      TALENT DEVELOPMENT lessons are presented during GT lessons which provide students with exposure to the types of tasks that are included in the gifted portfolio assessments.

      GIFTED PORTFOLIO ASSESSMENTS are taught during GT lessons and collected. These portfolio pieces are used in the third grade evaluation in spring. 

      The COGNITIVE ABILITIES TEST is administered in 2nd grade, except if your 3rd grade child has transferred to LCPS and does not have a test on file. The GT Department uses the scores for the third grade evaluation in the spring. 

      MAP (Math and Reading) assessments will be administered by the classroom teacher. All information about the MAP tests will be shared by your child's teacher. The GT Department uses the scores for the third grade evaluation in the spring. 

      GIFTED EVALUATION takes place in the spring of 3rd grade. The student's MAPCogAT, and Portfolio Pieces are then evaluated by a committee of gifted resource teachers. Notification of eligibility status will be sent throuh ParentVue in June by the LCPS Gifted Supervisor Wendy.King@lcps.org
