Following the nomination process, student data will be collected by the ESD GT Coordinator and assembled into individual student profiles identifiable by an assigned number (no names appear on data or profile). These profiles are then examined by the ESD GT Identification Committee. In grades 1-11, qualitative and quantitative data are collected from four (4) or more sources (at least two subjective and two objective sources). This data is used to determine if there is an indication of need for Gifted and Talented services.
