  • Gifted Nomination Process for New Private and/or Homeschooled Students

    • The gifted liaison will review your child’s information. If your child has a current intellectual evaluation, please send this information to the gifted office along with your Gifted Nomination Form (in Spanish).
    • Students who have not had any prior intellectual evaluation will need to be screened. The gifted liaison will contact you to schedule a screening.
    • Students who meet screening criteria will be referred for an intellectual evaluation by a school psychologist. During the school year, a school psychologist will work with your child's school to schedule the evaluation. During the summer, a school psychologist will contact you to schedule an evaluation.
    • You will be asked to complete several documents including a Gifted Characteristics and Needs Checklist and a Parent Questionnaire.
    • Once the evaluation is completed, the gifted liaison will prepare your child’s file for review by a district team, who will meet to determine eligibility based on state criteria. You will be notified of the eligibility determination by letter.
