Gifted Screening for 1st Grade

Gifted Service Options

The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) requires all public school districts to identify students who are gifted according to ODE criteria. Once identified, the responsibility for providing services to gifted students is left to the decision of each local Board of Education. As a result, gifted services vary greatly from district to district in Ohio. Because we strive to meet the needs of all learners, the Euclid City School District takes its responsibility to identify and serve gifted students very seriously.

Euclid Schools is committed to providing a continuum of programs and services for all students. Gifted students may need curriculum modifications, acceleration, self-contained classes and/or enrichment. Instruction is differentiated to provide all students appropriate pacing and support necessary for advanced-level learning. The links to the right will guide you to additional information about gifted identification and services in our Euclid Schools.

Gifted Screening for 1st Grade Spring 2021:
Euclid Schools will be offering in-person screening for gifted identification in Superior Cognitive Ability and Creative Thinking Ability for all students in first grade during the month of April. This screening for gifted identification is required by Ohio law. We want to be sure to offer this option to those first-grade students learning virtually from home.  

If you would like your virtual student assessed, please contact your school building principal. This assessment must be done in person at the school on the date(s) determined by your building principals.
If you choose to not include your child in gifted screening at this time, please know that, as always, you can make a referral for assessment for gifted identification at any time.
