Gifted & Talented
In order to be considered “Gifted and Talented” for the purposes of placement, the state of Oklahoma defines it as follows:
“Students who score in the top three percent (3%) on any nationally standardized test of “intellectual ability” means a composite, total or full scale score in the 97th percentile or above are considered Category 1." Our district uses the Slosson Intelligence Test.
According to our local Gifted & Talented plan, any student that scores in the 90th to 96th percentile on the above test will be considered Category 2.
Students are tested for GT each Spring through a parent and/or teacher referral process. Any new student to our district, that was in GT at their previous district, should be considered for GT upon enrollment through a screening process by the GT coordinator.
**The GT committee recently met to discuss our district plan. We are meeting January 29, 2018 to discuss Category 2 students. If you have ideas, other than testing, to identify Category 2 students please share with a member of the GT committee: Adam Beauchamp, Tonya Gaunt, Stephanie Hime, Melissa Knabe, Patti Lindsey, Catey Moring, Vanessa Perez, JG Stratton.
