Gifted Education Process Information


CCPS provides gifted education services to eligible students. In order for a student to be evaluated for eligibility, additional areas of strength, and/or CBG Academy admission, a GiftedProgram Services Referral and Review Form must be submitted to start the process. These forms may be completed by parents/guardians, community members, teachers, or students and are available throughout the year during normal operating hours from the main office. Verbal or email communications do not serve as a substitute for this form.

Signed and dated referral forms must be submitted to the student’s school by the end of the school day on the referral deadline date to be considered for assessment during the testing window for that grade level. If any of these dates falls on a weekend, school holiday/break, or snow day, the deadline is the end of the next school day in which school is in session. 

Referral deadlines are as follows:

  • October 15 - students currently in grade 5

  • December 15 - students currently in grades 2-4

  • January 15 - students currently in grades 6-12

  • March 15 - students currently in kindergarten or grade 1

IMPORTANT: These deadlines ensure that students are tested during the appropriate assessment window for their grade level and are included in any applicable CBG Academy decisions. Please note that any referrals received after the deadline designated for a child’s current grade level will be processed during a later assessment window.
