Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

We have reviewed the request for grade acceleration for your child,                                       . That review has resulted in a recommendation to obtain academic, cognitive and personal information relevant to grade acceleration. We need your written permission to proceed with the data collection process. The following areas will be evaluated:

  • Social and emotional development;
  • Intellectual ability, and
  • Academic achievement.

Please indicate your permission to proceed with the assessment by signing and returning the bottom portion of this sheet to the gifted and talented specialist/coordinator at your child's school. If you have any questions, please call                                                                          at                         .
