Visual & Performing Arts GT Referrals
We are now accepting individual referrals for visual and performing arts evaluations for gifted identification. All students in grades 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, and 10 will automatically be screened this fall by their Unified Arts teachers for referral and possible assessment in the areas of visual art, vocal and instrumental music, theater arts, and dance. In addition, any teacher, administrator, or parent may refer any student in grades K through 12 for evaluation.
Students who are good candidates display a passion for their craft. But, giftedness in the arts goes beyond passion. Students show a creative bent in how they approach their art and demonstrate exceptionally advanced technique given their age and training.
Referral forms can be downloaded of this site and must be received no later than September 15 for inclusion in this fall's assessment process. Forms received after that date but before January 26 will be included in spring evaluations. For additional information about the process and to download the referral and permission forms, click here.
