High Ability Spring Identification Deadlines

  • The Indiana Department of Education requires school districts to identify high ability (gifted) students and provide them with appropriately differentiated curriculum and instruction. In ZCS, we consider ability and achievement data of all students each spring to identify any who may need advanced instruction and/or curriculum. While the official designation is a state-required label for students, our school district is committed to continuous progress for all students, regardless of designation. Accelerated content is common in our classrooms as are heightened expectations and instructional levels and high-achieving peers. Instructional methods group and regroup students regularly with differentiated materials and goals. Our teachers are committed to regular assessment of skills and knowledge and matching experiences to challenge each child and help them make maximum academic growth. We are proud to be a high-performing school district with high expectations for all students.
  • For Students Currently in Grades 4-7: At this level students are identified more formally for high ability classes. All students are considered for high ability each year. Our identification team considers either achievement (NWEA) or ability (CoGAT) when making decisions. Parents will be notified on June 1st if their child has been recommended for differentiation based on the need for accelerated instruction or curriculum. If your child was not identified through our extensive process, parents may appeal the decision. Parents can complete the appeal process by June 15. Forms are located here.
  • If your child is currently in high ability class(es), you will not receive an email because this placement will continue for the next school year.
