                This year classes will be held in room 214.  I will be picking students up from their classes and returning them to their class for encore, lunch and recess.  The fifth grade students will be with their classes for strings.   I know that missing any of these scheduled school events was often a concern for students, parents, and teachers.  I believe our schedule will be good for everyone.

                I hope to greet many of you at our START/SIGNET Parent information night in October.  If you are in the building before then, please feel free to come to visit us in our classroom.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Beth Sullivan

Gifted Resource Teacher

The  Gifted Identification Process

In Prince William County Schools, students are found eligible for gifted services in Specific Intellectual Aptitude (Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and/or History and Social Sciences). The Identification and Placement process in Prince William County uses multiple criteria. The identification process begins either through general screening procedures or through the referral of a student by a parent, teacher, school staff member, or a community member. Students may also refer themselves. Referral forms may be obtained from the gifted education resource teacher.

A Division Identification and Placement meeting will be held within 90 school days from the date that written parent permission is received to determine eligibility. The criteria evaluated in gifted education identification process include the following:
·Assessment of student products or portfolios classroom performance
·Parent observations
·Teacher evaluation and observations
·Aptitude and achievement test scores

Because identification criteria and services vary greatly among localities, transfer students who have been receiving gifted education services in other school divisions do not automatically receive services in Prince William County. The Gifted Education Resource Teacher will review the student’s files, and Prince William County’s formal identification process will be initiated. In appropriate cases, data required for identification will be collected and combined with data from the student’s previous school. When enrolling, please notify the school of the student’s identification for services in another locality.
