How often can my child be evaluated for gifted services? How many times can my child be evaluated?
No student will be evaluated more than one time in a two-year period, as test scores are valid for two years. Additionally, because we do not want to discourage our high achieving students or have them engage in testing again and again for the purpose of gifted identification, a child may be evaluated to consider gifted eligibility a maximum of 3 times in his/her K-12 school career in CSD. Exceptions will be made only upon the recommendation of the district wide appeal committee. Children from demographic groups currently underrepresented in the gifted program may be evaluated one additional time.
