• Attention StingRay Parents:


     Interested in the Eligibility Process for Gifted Services?


    ·        In Middle School, this program is called SPECTRUM.

    ·        If a student was in the Futura program in 5th grade at LCPS, they are automatically enrolled in Spectrum for 6th grade.

    ·        If a student was found eligible for gifted services in another county in Virginia or another state, they still need to complete the LCPS Gifted eligibility process.

    ·        A Parent/Guardian Referral Form can be obtained from the LCPS website: Click Academics, then Gifted Services; scroll to the bottom of the page on the website. Print, complete the form, and submit to the Main Office for Heather Jackson, the Gifted Resource Teacher.

    ·        The LCPS county-wide Fall deadline for parent/guardian referrals is October 4th and Spring Deadline is February 7th.

    ·   SHMS Gifted Resource (Spectrum)  Teachers:

    Heather Jackson & Lyndria Bland

    ·        Any students who have been attending LCPS or students new to LCPS MUST go through the same eligibility evaluation process. 

    ·        The eligibility process ususally takes the entire 1st semester to complete.  Students who are found eligible in the Fall, will begin Spectrum in the spring semester.

    ·       Parents are invited to the Gifted Information Night
