Services for qualifying students will begin on March 1, 2018.

Testing will occur during the spring semester on each campus during the school day. Parents and principals will be notified of the results in June 2018. 

Contact your school counselor during the referral window to refer a student for testing for the Developmental Talent Pool (Grade 1) or the Advanced Academics Program (Grades 2-11). Services for qualifying students will start at the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year.
