GT Program Nominations – due December 22, 2017

To nominate a student for the 2017-2018 G/T Program, parents need to fill out a nomination form.  Kindergarten students do not need to be nominated, as every student is screened for the program.  First through 4th grade students already identified as Gifted and Talented do not need to be reassessed.  Fifth graders interested in participating in the 6th grade G/T Program DO need to be nominated.  The G/T Program serves students who have an educational need for specialized services.  The program includes placement with a classroom teacher trained in gifted education and pull-out classes with the G/T Facilitator. Please make sure that the completed form is turned in to Ms. Vargas.
