TRANSFER STUDENTS WITH FORMER GIFTED IDENTIFICATION OR PROGRAMMING

  • Parent(s)/Guardian(s) are asked to notify the school, classroom teacher, and/or gifted resource teacher upon enrollment if the student was identified as gifted and/or received above level instruction or enrichment in a previous school or district. The Gifted Resource Teacher will work with the family to collect evidence and provide immediate support as close to what the child received within the school capabilities until a formal Gifted Review Team meeting can be scheduled. Transfer gifted identifications must still meet Colorado ECEA criteria and may or may not be accepted.


    Gifted Identification(s) Granted by a School in Colorado

    Colorado identifications that are based upon the current ECEA criteria are portable and should be accepted by any school in Colorado. A Gifted Review Team meeting is still required to review the data and accept the transfer identification if it meets Colorado criteria for a gifted identification as described in ECEA rules.


    Gifted Identification(s) Granted by a School Outside of Colorado

    A Gifted Review Team is required to review the criteria by which the previous identification was made. Transfer gifted identifications from other states may not be honored if data does not support Colorado criteria for a gifted identification as described in ECEA rules.

    “The Compact addresses the challenges of military children and their frequent relocations…. Receiving schools shall honor placement based on student’s previous enrollment and/or educational assessments. The receiving school is not barred from performing subsequent evaluations to ensure appropriate placement.” The Gifted Resource Teacher will work with the family to collect evidence and provide immediate support as close to what the child received within the school capabilities until a formal Gifted Review Team meeting can be scheduled.
