PROGRAM OVERVIEW (download)

What does it mean to be gifted?
“Gifted pupil” means a child who is of lawful school age, who due to superior intellect or advanced learning ability, or both, is not afforded an opportunity for otherwise attainable progress and development in regular classroom instruction and who needs appropriate gifted education services, to achieve at levels commensurate with the child’s intellect and ability.

What is gifted education?
“Gifted education” means appropriate academic course offerings and services that are required to provide an educational program that is an integral part of the regular school day and that is commensurate with the academic abilities and potential of a gifted pupil.

Gifted Student Characteristics

  • Unchallenged by curriculum
  • Asks/answers questions above same aged peers
  • Enjoys studying/researching/reading outside of school
  • Writes/creates using detail and originality
  • Speaks with high level of verbal ability
  • Accelerated pace of thought processes
  • Can retain extraordinary quantity of information
  • Demonstrates unique interests and curiosity
  • Solves problems in diverse and novel ways

Program Goals

  • Provide comprehensive gifted services which cultivate each student’s problem solving and leadership skills while offering enrichment and creative opportunities.
  • Promote equity and access to appropriately challenging curriculum by educating teachers and staff on the unique academic and social-emotional needs of gifted students
  • Provide gifted identification procedures which are inclusive and reflective of the diverse student populations within each school.
  • Provide training for all staff on the procedures for referring and identifying students for gifted services.

THE GIFTED PROGRAM REFERRAL & IDENTIFICATION PROCESS (download)

STEP 1- Referral
Anyone can initiate a Gifted Program Referral for services: parents/guardians, teachers, principals, classified staff, or students themselves. To make a referral, contact the Gifted Coordinator and you will be sent the forms to complete and return to the Gifted Coordinator. Referral forms are also available at each school site and at the district Gifted Program webpage. Transfer students identified as gifted will have transfer test scores and educational profile reviewed to determine continued eligibility or to determine if additional data is needed through testing.

STEP 2- Data Collection & Review
Once referred, the Gifted Coordinator will begin collecting information about each student referred for identification. A Parent Input Form will be sent home for parents to complete and return. The student’s teacher will complete a Teacher Input Form. Students will complete their own Student Input Form. An educational profile for each student is developed. This includes state testing, grades, and district achievement testing. After a review of the data collected, a recommendation for gifted services or gifted testing will be made.

STEP 3- Formal Evaluation
Students recommended for gifted testing are given the CogAT (Cognitive Abilities Test) to help determine eligibility. This tests a student’s ability to reason using words (verbal), numbers (quantitative) and pictures (non-verbal). Some students are given the NNAT3 (Naglieri Nonverbal Abilities Test), which also determines reasoning abilities. This test uses only pictures and is beneficial for ELL, ESS and “at-risk” students.

Step 4- Eligibility Determination
Testing results data and student educational profiles will be used to help determine if gifted services are needed. To qualify for gifted services, students must test at or above the 90th percentile or test within “highly proficient” on approved standardized state tests (AASA, AzSCI, ACT Aspire, ACT).

Step 5- Annual Review
Gifted students’ annual state and district assessments (AASA, AzSCI, ACT Aspire, and ACT ), along with grades and student input, will be used to determine continuation of gifted services.

THE GIFTED LEARNER

Gifted learners display unique characteristics that are both conducive to their learning and growth but can also be challenging and hindering if left unsupported. The Gifted Learner is a complex and often misunderstood type of student who is often overlooked for needed social-emotional and instructional support, and frequently left to manage difficulties on their own. The resources below provide a brief overview of gifted student characteristics and needs. The more we learn about our gifted learners, the better we can support them.
