This is a message from your campus GT Specialist: 

Parents of kindergarten students - Welcome to Creekview!  

 

Many of you have inquired about gifted & talented testing for your child. All kindergarten students in the district will be screened during December/ January.  For students with qualifying scores from initial screenings, letters will be sent home requesting permission for further testing. For kindergarten students demonstrating an educational need, gifted services will begin in March.

 

For information and updates, please refer to my edlio site:
