Testing for the Gifted Reach Out Program
Parents of current first graders and children new to the district interested in having their child tested for the district’s gifted program (GRO) should send a written response no later than December 2, 2016 to their child’s classroom teacher. Testing for those eligible will begin in December and results will be mailed home over winter break. In conjunction with GRO testing, teacher and parent evaluations are considered in determining student eligibility. Current kindergartners interested in the program will be tested in December 2017. Please send requests next year to the appropriate first grade teacher.
The GRO program provides enrichment for students who have demonstrated high capabilities. The work presented is above grade level and is rigorous. Children are expected to fulfill their regular classroom and GRO proficiencies during the year.
