Gifted Education
How is Gifted Defined?
According to the Ohio Revised Code Section 3324.01, “Gifted means students who perform or show potential for performing at remarkable high levels of accomplishment when compared to others of their age, experience, or environment.” To be identified as gifted, students must perform at a gifted level, generally at or above the 95th percentile, on a state approved, nationally normed test in one of the following areas: Cognitive Ability, Mathematics, Reading/Writing, Science, Social Studies, and Visual and Performing Arts.
How do we identify gifted students? 
In the West Carrollton School District, all students take the Terra Nova and InView tests in the spring of their second grade year. These tests provide teachers with data to compare student progress to students across the nation and also identify students who are performing at the gifted level in Cognitive Ability or in an academic subject. Teachers are informed if their students are performing at a gifted level in these areas and use this information with other classroom data to guide their planning and instruction.  OAA and PARCC scores are not approved for gifted identification in the state of Ohio.
