Gifted Services Testing Window

Fall 2019 Gifted Testing Window

Bulloch County Schools' Gifted Services will conduct a fall review of students who have transferred to Bulloch County and students entering first grade. We will receive nominations from teachers, parents/guardians, students, or peers for any students who meet the specifications for this window of consideration.  


Nominations will be accepted beginning Monday, August 12, 2019.  The window for submitting nominations closes on Friday, August 16, 2019 at noon.  All nominations must be submitted to the QUEST facilitator at each elementary or middle school by that date.  For your convenience, an online nomination form is available for each elementary and middle school.  See the links on this website. Nominations for all other students will be accepted during our main testing window beginning in January.


Bulloch County Schools does not typically test a child for gifted services more than once in a school year.  Students tested in the spring are traditionally not eligible to participate in the full fall review. Any nominations received after the test window closes will be held until the Spring 2020 review.


Once the nominations are closed, the eligibility team at each school will review the data submitted to determine if a student requires a formal evaluation for gifted services. A Nomination does not guarantee formal evaluation. Gifted Services are based on need, and the review team must establish that there is evidence of a need for services before evaluation can take place. At that time, the parents/guardians of the identified students will receive a Permission to Test form to sign and return to their child's school.  Testing will follow the receipt of this form.  Testing will begin after teams have taken time for the data review and the receipt of permission to test. An eligibility report will be mailed home for each student that participates in a formal evaluation by December 13, 2019.


Kindergarten Students: As of the 2017-2018 school year, we will accept nominations for kindergarten students during the Spring testing window. If a kindergarten student is referred for further testing, he or she will be tested at the beginning of the next school year as a first grader.
