It is recommended that parents of primary grade students consult with the classroom
teacher and/or the gifted specialist before requesting testing. Test results for such
young students are valid for a short time only and are NOT required for the
identification of primary students for differentiated instruction or extended groups
in reading and math in first or second grades. The assessments used to identify
students for these groups are given to all children at the beginning and throughout
the year as part of the regular educational program.
