The School District of Ashland adheres to the state statutes for Gifted and Talented programming identification. All students selected for participation in G/T programming are chosen from our Talent Pool Lists. The talent pool lists are a compilation of data that is reviewed every year by the G/T staff. The following items are included on the talent pool lists: faculty, staff, parent, self, and community recommendations; Peer Nomination for Leadership; Star Reading Test; Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Tests; and, WKCE-CRT Tests.
Students chosen to participate in the various programs are the ones who display the greatest need for that particular offering.
