RES GT PROGRAM
For our District's Stated Definition of Gifted and Talented program, Beliefs, and Goals see District Site
Students in grades K-5 may be seen for an enrichment unit based on results of testing, student work in the subject area, and teacher recommendation. Placement in enrichment units are done on a case by case and subject by subject basis. Some students will be seen for one Trimester while others are seen for multiple time periods based on student strengths.
Students in Grades 3-5 may qualify for the GT program based on results of a Cognitive test and teacher recommendation. The MAP test results may be used to offer additional evidence if the other results are close. Typically students in grades K-2 do not yet have the evidence to qualify for the GT program.

Students in the 4th and 5th grade high math groups have the opportunity of participating in the program. We have continued offering the Math Olympiad program to these two groups of students for two days in each cycle. The Math Olympiad program is an effort to challenge students and help them learn how to solve problems better. Students in the program learn strategies and concepts and take a monthly test that program members across the world take as well from October-March.
Math Olympiad Hints!
In an effort to provide our highest achieving math students with the opportunity to delve deeper into mathematical concepts and move at a slightly quicker pace, we have developed a class to meet their needs. This year, teachers in grades 3-5 will be teaching a new and challenging math curriculum called M3. See the Project M3 website for additional information.
The following criteria were used to determine which students qualified to participate in M3 math class:
- Grade Level Assessments
- MAP Test Score
- CogNat Test Score (grades 4-5)
- MCA Test Score (grades 4-5)
