Nominations for Gifted and Talented (G/T) will begin January 13, 2020 through February 7, 2020 for students enrolled in first grade through fifth grade. If you would like to nominate your child for this program, please contact your child’s teacher to request his/her input. The teacher will be able to tell you if he/she is seeing characteristics of a gifted child and will be able to evaluate your child in relation to others at his/her grade level. It is often difficult to determine how advanced a child is unless he/ she is able to be compared to his/her peers. Students who qualify for G/T during spring semester will begin GT services in Fall 2020. There will be a universal screening for all kindergarten scholars enrolled at Lake Ridge. If your kindergarten scholar demonstrates GT characteristics on the screening, the GT Coordinator will complete the full assessment for consideration into the GT program. You may access hard copies at the links below or from “Quicklinks” on the campus website. Please return all completed forms to Rashonda Johnson, Counselor, no later than February 7, 2020. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the nomination process, please contact Rashonda Johnson at 972-293-4501 or via email at Sincerely, Rashonda Johnson, School Counselor Lake Ridge Elementary
