Gifted Education Services

In adherence to PA Regulations for Gifted Education, the Elizabethtown Area School District supports a multiple criteria method for identifying eligible students who may be gifted. Teachers, parents, school counselors, a school psychologist, administrators, and other individuals at the parents' request are involved in the process. The process includes a review of classroom performance and school records, use of rating scales and parental input, and evaluation by school psychologist and multidisciplinary evaluation. All students in the gifted education program demonstrate a need for specially designed instruction.

Parents who suspect that their child is in need of specially designed instruction beyond that required in 22 Pa. School Code Section 4 may request in writing their child be evaluated under the criteria of 22 Pa. School Code Section 16.22.
