Gifted and Talented Program identifying students

Steamboat Springs School District is in the process of identifying students in need of services through the district’s newly developing Gifted and Talented Program for grades 3 to 12. All students in grades 3, 6 and 9 are being assessed as an initial step in identifying needs. Classroom teachers also may use information from the assessment in their efforts to meet individual needs.

The school district is requesting referrals from parents and/or teachers of students in grades 3 to 12 who think they have a student in need of support through this program. Students in grades other than 3, 6 and 9 will be assessed upon receipt of a parent or teacher referral.

The main referral window will be Sept. 27 through Oct. 13. If you would like to refer a student for assessment of need, please ask for a referral package from your school office. Please return all referrals to your school office by Oct. 13.

Upon the completion of referrals and initial assessments, district staff will review the information along with a larger collection of student work. This collection will include CSAP and district assessments, when available, as well as other examples of student work.

If you have questions or would like further information, please call Kelly Stanford, director of curriculum and instruction, at 871-3190.
