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.
All students in grades one and five are screened for possible gifted identification in superior cognitive ability and creative thinking ability, and in grades two through nine for possible gifted identification in math and reading. Students who meet the state score for identification are identified at the end of this screening process. Additional assessment opportunities are available at the request of the parent/guardian.
