Classroom Screening  - Local schools select a two-week period in January and February of each school year, to review all students in their school

Classroom teachers use the Characteristics Instrument for Screening Students (CISS) to identify students with superior abilities in five or more of the following areas:  motivation, interests, communications skills, problem-solving abilities, memory, inquiry, insight, reasoning, creativity, and humor. Parents may request to view their child’s screening results. 

Students who meet either the automatic screening OR classroom screening criteria AND who have supporting data gathered from test history, products, and/or advanced content levels are referred for gifted placement testing. Once referred to testing:
- Parents receive the Parent Notification for Testing Consent Form.
- Student is tested for the gifted program.
- Parents receive test results.
- If state eligibility is determined, students are placed in the TAG program.

Declaration of Unitary Status:  The Talented and Gifted Program (TAG) is committed to identifying students who presently are under-represented in the program.  In middle schools with an enrollment of less than 75 gifted students, regulations permit adding additional students to TAG classes.  Middle school TAG students receive gifted services in up to four advanced core content classes (language arts, science, social studies, mathematics).
