Gifted Screeninghttp://whd.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/360Gifted Screening<p>​</p><p>Students who display an advanced degree of general intellectual ability require additional program support in order to reach their educational potential.  This support may be through enhancing the curriculum, differentiated instruction and through providing program extensions and enrichment.  This type of programming is important to engage, motivate and challenge students who are identified as gifted in either the regular classroom or in gifted classroom placements.</p><p> </p><p>Parents/guardians of a student who will be in or above Grade 3 in this school year, who wish to nominate their child for gifted screening, are asked to contact Matt Davies (SERT), before <strong>Monday, September 27, 2021</strong>.  </p><p> </p><p>Students may be nominated by either a teacher or parent/guardian. The gifted screening process is also open to students in grades 4-8 in school or our <span lang="EN-CA" style="text-decoration:underline;">online learners</span>. If your child has previously taken the gifted test (OLSAT) but did not meet the minimal requirements to be considered for the gifted pathway, then they are eligible again this year to retake the test. </p><p> </p><p>A letter examining the gifted screening process in greater detail will be sent to parents/guardians of students in Grade 3 later in September. </p><p> </p><p>If you require further information about the gifted screening process, please contact the school.<br></p><p><br></p>
