G/T Referral Process

  • How do I Decide to Refer? 
    Observe your child 
    Talk to your child’s teacher 
    Think about common descriptors of gifted children 
    – Quick grasp of concepts 
    – Unusually good memory 
    – Curiosity 
    – Creativity 
    – Sensitivity 
    – Risk-taking 
    – Task commitment
    If your child or student has these traits then you may refer them to be observed and possibly tested for G/T services by completing the form linked below: 

    Please return completed HHS referral forms to:

    Assessments will be conducted in the Spring.  Evaluation of student data and selection of services occur in May. Parents are notified by mail in May of the final determination of services. Students who require services will receive them beginning in the Fall.
