Testing for the Gifted Reach Out Program


Parents of current first through fourth graders interested in having their child tested for the district’s gifted program (GRO) should send a written response no later than April 17, 2017 to their child’s classroom teacher. Testing for those eligible will begin in May and results will be mailed home. 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 is represented above grade level and is rigorous.  Children are expected to fulfill their regular classroom and GRO proficiencies during the year.  

The Gifted Reach Out (GRO) program focuses on nurturing and supporting the unique gifts and talents of our highly capable students.GRO is designed as an enrichment program to encourage independent learning and to stimulate creative problem solving and critical thinking.

Students are exposed to new subjects with the intent to broaden their interests and enhance their present grade level core curriculum.

Students considered eligible for the GRO program are evaluated in June by formal assessments as well as parent and teacher questionnaires. First graders and students new to the district may be tested in December. Students who were previously in a gifted and talented program in another district are assessed upon entry into our district using our measurements prior to their admission toGRO.
