In order for students to be formally identified as gifted, a minimum of three pieces of evidence is needed from one of the categories listed below along with a committee recommendation. Academic areas must include a qualifying test score (96th percentile or above on a norm referenced assessment) unless a child has a documented special consideration (e.g. disability, disorder, socio-economic issues, etc.). Students may qualify in more than one category providing they have three pieces of evidence and a committee recommendation for each category. This list is subject to change as Franklin County School District administers alternative assessments to evaluate student progress. Last updated for the 2017-2018 school year.
