General Identification (K-12)
Students selected for the Gifted and Talented Program are not selected as a reward for either good performance or model behaviour but because they have special needs. Therefore, the goal of the identification process is to apply comprehensive and unbiased procedures to find students who possess superior abilities and/or potential in the areas of general intellectual ability and/or specific ability aptitude. The critical decision to be made is not if a student is gifted but whether the student's ability is at a level that warrants special educational provisions. Students identified as most in need of services are invited to participate in the program .
