• Referral forms (Download Referral Form Here) are due on October 5th for 2nd-9th grades. Students will be assessed during the fall and
begin receiving services during the first semester. Kindergarten students are assessed in January
and services begin after Spring Break.
Students may be referred for the gifted program by teachers, parents, principals,

Students are assessed during the regular school day.
students who were previously identified at another district will need to
complete the referral process and testing and meet LPS qualifications; however,
teachers can begin differentiation based on apparent needs at any time.
