WS/FCS students enrolled in second grade are screened in the Spring using a group aptitude assessment. If eligible, students participate in an group achievement test. Parents receive prior notice of both screenings, if applicable, and may decline to have their child participate if they prefer. Students will be identified for services in the Academically/Intellectually Gifted Program based on results for both Aptitude and Achievement screening. Limited opportunities for rescreening to qualify for the program may also be available, as specified by the district's identification guidelines.
Some children may not begin to exhibit characteristics of giftedness until after the second grade screening process. Parents or school leaders may request a reevaluation of the student for gifted services once in grades 3-5 and once in grades 6-8.
