The Screening Process:
The first step in being identified as talented is to be screened by a teacher familiar with your child’s gifts. The screening begins at the school level with a signed permission form or a written request from the parent sent to the school counselor. Tangible evidence of a student's work, such as programs from recitals or plays, or a portfolio of art work, must be provided.
