Gifted Services Testing Window

COVID-19 Gifted Testing Update: 

Due to COVID-19, we were unable to complete testing for gifted eligibility in Spring 2020. Students who were nominated for the Spring 2020 testing window will resume testing at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. More information regarding testing dates and expected dates to receive eligibility reports will be sent when school returns in the fall.  


Bulloch County Schools conducts reviews of children who are nominated for gifted services. The school district receives nominations from teachers, parents, guardians, students, or peers for any students who meet the specifications for this window of consideration.
 
All nominations must be submitted to the school district's Quest facilitator at each elementary or middle school by the deadline of each nomination period in the fall and spring.  For your convenience, there are online nomination forms for each elementary and middle school on this web page.  
 
Bulloch County Schools does not typically test a child for gifted services more than once in a school year. Students tested in this spring, traditionally will not be eligible to participate in the full fall review. Any nominations received after a spring test window closes will be held until the next spring review. 
 
Once the nominations are closed, the eligibility team at each school will review the data submitted to determine if a student requires a formal evaluation for gifted services. A nomination does not guarantee formal evaluation. Gifted Services are based on need: therefore, the review team must establish that there is evidence of a need for services before evaluation can take place. At that time, the parents/guardians of the identified students will receive a Permission to Test Form to sign and return to their child's school.  Testing will follow the receipt of this form. The school district will mail an eligibility report to the home of each student that participates in a formal evaluation.
