• Typical Screening & Identification Criteria

    UCPS conducts an annual, district wide screening for students in grades 3-7 where students data points are automatically collected to make further recommendations in regards to gifted service identifiation and services.  In UCPS, students must meet the UCPS Identification criteria in order to be formally identified as gifted.  The spring screening process begins at the start of the second semester and concludes at the end of the school year with the collection of End of Grade scores and final grades.

     

    Due to spring school closures, summer testing will not be available this year.  All notifications regarding the newly qualified and/or those students referred for further evaluation will be distributed when students return to school buildings for the new school year.

    If you have any questions regarding the screening and/or identification processes, email aig.summertesting@ucps.k12.nc.us.  If you prefer to speak to someone directly, you can contact the AIG Teacher at your child’s school upon their return.  If you are unsure of who that is, ask the office personnel and leave a message.
