WS/FCS students enrolled in second grade may be given an assessment using a group aptitude and a group achievement test. All students in the second grade at each school will be offered the opportunity to take the tests. The parents receive prior notice of the testing, and may decline to have their child participate in the test if they prefer. The screening process occurs during November of the second grade year. Students will be identified for services in the academically/intellectually gifted program based on these test results or the results of other approved assessments that are submitted to the school system. A limited opportunity for retesting to qualify for the program is also available.
