How to Get Started
We look forward to working with you this year. You are a critical member of the identification and support process for gifted students, and we appreciate your willingness to offer this valuable educational opportunity to students.
Before you get started, we suggest perusing this site to learn about talent search benefits, considerations for testing, and the enrollment process. You can also review the 7th Grade Talent Search Coordinator's Guide and PowerPoint presentation. Recordings of earlier webinars are also available.
Identify your eligible students using recent test scores. Choose the name of your qualifying test and then review the score requirements.
Deliver the exciting news to families! We've made it easy with downloadable letter templates in English or Spanish and brochures in English or Spanish.
Families enroll directly, but may need your encouragement to take part. Encourage families to enroll online (for a quicker response) or to submit their paper applications by the deadline. See our calendar for a list of deadlines. To assist your student families there are fee grants, which are available to students who qualify for free or reduced lunch programs.
