The following information is to assist parents/guardians with their planning. The Gifted Education Department hopes this information is helpful to you in navigating the gifted eligibility process. We encourage you to attend a Gifted Information Night session in January, 2020 to get more detailed information about the gifted eligibility process. Gifted Information Night session dates, times, and locations will be announced soon and posted on this webpage under the Gifted Information Night tab. You may also contact the SEARCH (elementary) or SPECTRUM (middle school) teacher at your child's school for more information.
