OPTIONAL IDENTIFICATION OF GIFTED STUDENTS

ANNOUNCEMENT OF OPTIONAL TESTING FOR IDENTIFICATION OF GIFTED STUDENTS

You may request that your child be tested on the Cognitive Ability Test (CogAT). If you wish to have your child participate in this round of testing, all requests must be made through the below online link by December 6th. If you have a child in 2nd and/or 4th grade, they will take the test during school with their class. For other grade levels, we are offering an optional testing opportunity. In order to decrease disruption to your child's instruction, this testing opportunity will take place on Saturday, December 8, at Maple Dale from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm for all four elementary buildings. To sign up your child for this opportunity, please click here.

Please note it is the parents' responsibility to provide transportation to and from Maple Dale on morning of testing. Also please note Sycamore cannot use kindergarten or first grade scores for gifted placement.
