FOR THE IDENTIFICATION AND SERVICE
OF CHILDREN WHO ARE GIFTED
“Gifted” means students who perform or show potential for performing at remarkably high levels of
accomplishment when compared to others of their age, experience or environment and who are
identified under division (A), (B), (C), or (D) of section 3324.03 of the Ohio Revised Code.
DISTRICT IDENTIFICATION PLAN
The district conducts whole grade screening and accepts referrals, screens and identifies, or screens and
reassesses students who perform or show potential for performing at high levels of accomplishment in
the areas of superior cognitive ability, specific academic ability, creative thinking ability, and/or visual
and/or performing arts. The district must follow policy and procedures established in Ohio
Administrative Code 3301-51-15. These rules specify that assessment instruments must come from the
list approved by the Ohio Department of Education. All assessments are selected and administered
by qualified personnel, taking into account the diverse needs of all our students, and in
conformance with the Code of Fair Testing Practices in Education (available upon request).
