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.
Elementary students in first grade and fifth grade are given the Cognitive Abilities Test for possible gifted identification in superior cognitive ability and creative thinking ability.
Students in grades two through nine are screened three times a year using the iReady Assessment for possible gifted identification in the subject areas of math and reading. Additional assessment opportunities are available at the request of the parent/guardian.
The Euclid City Schools elementary gifted program is housed at Chardon Hills Elementary for students in grades two through five.
