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 Grades 2-8 in Reading and Math:
Euclid Schools will be offering in-person screening for gifted identification in Specific Academic Ability (Reading and Math) for all virtual students in grades 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.
Parents of 2nd through 8th graders that would like to have their virtual student assessed should contact the school building principal (see contact information below). This assessment must be done in person at the school on the date(s) determined by the building principals. If you choose not to include your child in gifted screening for identification in Reading or Math at this time, please know that screening opportunities will be given again in person this Fall of 2021.
Gifted Screening for 5th 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 5th grade during the month of May. Screening for gifted identification is required by Ohio law and we want to ensure our 5th graders that are learning from home do not miss out on this opportunity.
Parents of 5th graders that would like to have their 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.
Parents that choose to opt out of the gifted screening at this time can make a referral for assessment for gifted identification at any time.
