Referrals for Gifted Education Services

  • The referral period for students entering grades 1-8 for the 2020-2021 school year is December 1, 2019 to January 24, 2020 (for parent referrals) or through February 14, 2020 (for teacher referrals).  The referral period has now closed.

    If your child will enter grades 1-8 in the 2020-2021 school year and you have already been referred, click here for a timeline for the identification process. 

    Identification for gifted education services for kindergarten begins with a Child Find screening. Parents do not need to complete any forms unless notified of a need for further evaluation following this screening. Child Find screening dates will be provided when you register your child for a kindergarten class in one of our Brandywine School District schools. Parents who are not registering their children in a BSD school may contact BSD to inquire about available screening dates.  If your child is entering kindergarten in September 2020, please click here for a timeline for the identification process.  Please note that students must be 5 years old by August 31, 2020, in order to register for kindergarten in BSD.
