When is GT testing in my school?

Parent/Staff/Student GT Recommendation: 

Do you suspect that your child may be in need of enriched academic programming?  Does it seem like he or she may need additional challenges in their education, and may be gifted or talented?  Gifted/Talented (G/T) testing at Eagleview is currently scheduled for March 11, 2021, for all students in grades K-1 and 3-5.  (Second graders already took the NNAT screening test earlier this year.).  If you have a student you would like to nominate for G/T identification and would like to have tested, please fill out this form no later than January 30, 2021. You may also go to https://www.adams12.org/gifted-advanced-academics/identification-assessment for further information.

Universal Screening: In Adams 12 Five Star Schools, 2nd and 6th graders who are not already identified GT participate in the Universal Screening process for potential gifted and talented identification. Find more detailed information regarding Universal Screening in the Five Star District.

Important dates for the Universal Screening process at our school:  NNAT Assessment will be given to in-person Second Graders on Wednesday. November 4 and remote Second Graders on Thursday, November 5th.
