Notification of Academic Giftedness Screening


Dear Parents and Guardians,

This information is to notify you that we will be assessing your child to identify areas of academic giftedness in mathematics, science, social studies, and language arts. The purpose of screening students for academic area of giftedness is to identify and develop your child's intellectual capacity in their specific areas of strength. As students enter middle school, it is important to have this additional information so that we may better serve your child in instructional programming. After your child is screened and the Gifted and Talented Committee has scored the assessment, you will receive written notification of the results. The assessment will be administered by grade level for identified Gifted and Talented students at Elgin Middle School on the following days:Announcement

  • 7th Grade Screening: Monday, November 12, 2018
  • 8th Grade Screening: Monday, December 10, 2018
