Gifted Identification Update- March 25, 2020

With the closure of Prince William County Schools due to COVID-19, the timeline for gifted identification has been affected. The division-level Gifted Identification/Placement Committees will meet to review cases and make decisions regarding eligibility as soon as possible when PWCS reopens. We will continue to keep you updated as the situation evolves. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at Kraynakz@pwcs.edu.


The Identification Process

In Prince William County Schools, students are found eligible for gifted services in Specific Intellectual Aptitude (Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and/or History and Social Sciences). The Identification and Placement process in Prince William County uses multiple criteria. The identification process begins either through general screening procedures or through the referral of a student by a parent, teacher, school staff member, or a community member. Students may also refer themselves. For the referral form in English, click here. For the referral form in Spanish, click here. Referral forms may be obtained from the gifted education resource teacher as well.

A Division Identification and Placement meeting will be held within 90 school days from the date that written parent permission is received to determine eligibility. The criteria evaluated in gifted education identification process include the following:
·Assessment of student products or portfolios classroom performance
·Parent observations
·Teacher evaluation and observations
·Aptitude and achievement test scores

Because identification criteria and services vary greatly among localities, transfer students who have been receiving gifted education services in other school divisions do not automatically receive services in Prince William County. The Gifted Education Resource Teacher will review the student’s files, and Prince William County’s formal identification process will be initiated. In appropriate cases, data required for identification will be collected and combined with data from the student’s previous school. When enrolling, please notify the school of the student’s identification for services in another locality.
