Gifted and Talented

Important GT Information
Starting September 3rd and ending September 24th, students in grades 3 and 5 will take the "universal screening" of the Cognitive Abilities Test which is one piece of a body of evidence which can be used to determine gifted programming. Students in grades 1, 2, and 4 have the option to undergo what is called "referral testing." These referrals may come from a classroom teacher or parents.

If you are interested in having your student(s) tested, please fill out this link by Friday, August 16th. If you have any questions about the testing process please contact Amy Corr, Assistant Principal and LPE's GT Coordinator at 303-387-8725 or amy.corr@dcsdk12.org. 

Within any school district there are many ways to serve gifted and talented students. At Legacy Point, our belief is that students are better served through integration with like peers using a cluster model approach. Research shows this model to be most effective in meeting the needs of students. Our GT Facilitator collaborates with classroom teachers to extend the content for identified gifted learners. Contact Amy Corr, Gifted and Talented Facilitator, at amy.corr@dcsdk12.org if you have further questions.
