Identification and Designation

Identifying gifted learners is an important step in meeting their diverse learning profiles. Before beginning the process of identification and designation of a student, please consider how a designation may benefit the student. Students within the district are not required to have a gifted designation in order to apply or participate in any district programs.

The district’s practice with regards to identification and designation is outlined in the Gifted Education Resource Package: A Process for Screening, Identifying and Designating Gifted Students. The supporting documents for the process can be found in section D of this package.
