Identification of Gifted and Talented Students
The existing screening tools used for the identification of Gifted and Talented students are in-person aptitude, achievement, and performance assessments. The SCDE is in the process of exploring virtual screening options. More information relating to the identification of potential Gifted and Talented students will be provided to districts. HCS will collaborate with the SCDE to ensure that the proper procedures are followed to ensure that timely identification occurs as allowable by COVID-19 restrictions.
Schools should schedule gifted and talented students with thoughtful consideration to ensure that a continuity of services is maintained. Schools will determine the master schedule and grouping for their school keeping in mind the needs of the gifted and talented students
