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 25, 2020 (for parent referrals) or through February 14, 2020 (for teacher referrals).
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.
