Students possessing these abilities can be found in all populations, across all economic strata, and in all areas of human endeavor.
Teachers, counselors, administrators, parents or guardians, peers, self, or any other individuals with knowledge of the student’s abilities may refer a student to the Child Study Team for consideration for placement in the gifted program (Program for Academically Gifted Education or PAGE). Additionally, all second grade students are observed as potential gifted referrals using a gifted behavior checklist and referred to the Child Study Team as appropriate.
each student referred, information is gathered in the areas of aptitude,
characteristics, and performance. This information is studied and
considered to determine if the student is eligible for PAGE
services. Students are re-referred each year.
