2018 NNAT3 Testing Dates
NNAT3 testing may take place March 14 and March 15, 2018 for all second and sixth grade students. The NNAT3 is completely nonverbal and may serve as a gifted and talented marker. 


Annual Parent Communication Plan and Progress Monitoring 
The SOROCO GT program is working toward more effective and efficient means of communication. Annually, parents of identified students may receive three opportunities for communication including: the advanced learning plan (ALP) meeting, progress monitoring between the teachers and the GT specialist mid-year, and the end of year goal attainment. Parent meetings are offered as needed or at least once per semester. Individual contact via email and/or phone calls are available as needed or wanted by parents and/or students.

 As stated above, progress monitoring takes place formally three times per year. There is an overarching understanding that the ALP is a dynamic document that will be modified throughout the year as students demonstrate the need for different or additional modifications and accommodations. Informal progress monitoring takes place weekly and/or monthly for students.

2017 NNAT3 Testing Dates
NNAT3 testing may take place May 16, 2017 for all second and sixth grade students. The NNAT3 is completely nonverbal and may serve as a gifted and talented marker.
Gifted and Talented Education

Gifted students are those students whose abilities, talents and potential for accomplishment are so exceptional or developmentally advanced that they require special provisions to meet their educational programming needs.

South Routt School District is committed to the educational advancement of all students. The district will provide gifted and talented education for identified exceptional students according to the goals set forth in the students’ Advanced Learning Plans.

All students will be tested at the end of second and sixth grade. However this screening is only one of several indicators that might initiate the identification process for eligibility to receive gifted and talented services. Students might also be identified through teacher referral, parent referral, or scores on regularly given school assessments. After referral, a body of evidence including teacher and parent input as well as assessment outcomes will be considered before identifying a student for an Advanced Learning Plan.
