Placement Criteria for Gifted Services
Each year, student data on state approved gifted assessments are reviewed to determine placements. Teacher recommendations and classroom assessments and grades are not used for placement. Students are prioritized for tiered services based on data. Gifted services are filled using the prioritized list for each grade level. When possible, a space is left in tier one and tier two gifted service classrooms. Criteria is based on the cumulative scores and gifted identifications of all students in the grade levels relevant to the gifted service.
