After conversation with your child's teacher, you may now need to complete a Parent Checklist. (Parent Checklist-Spanish version)
To begin the referral process, the "Parent Checklist" is completed by the parent. The child's teacher completes the "Gifted Checklist" and the Gifted Criteria Checklist". These forms are considered by the school guidance counselor and teacher in a discussion about the student's needs and abilities. A decision is made regarding the need for testing or further classroom interventions. The diagram below illustrates this process, which begins at your child's school.
