Troup County Schools
Contracts should indicate:
1. What is the state requirement for gifted classes?
The state requires that all gifted students must receive a minimum of one segment (1 class) of gifted service per day. In TCSS, we strive to provide services over the state requirement.
2. What type of scheduling accommodations will be provided for gifted students?
Every effort shall be made to assign students to as many gifted-service model classes as appropriate by scoring the rubrics. However, gifted students may not be eligible to receive services through a gifted-service model class in all subject areas.
3. What do we do when an out-of-state student transfers to Georgia?
Use the CRCT-type achievement test that is administered in that state. For example, Alabama students take the ARM test in reading and math. If the student has no criterion-based test score, please contact the director of secondary curriculum or the Exceptional Education department.
4. What do we do for rubric tiebreakers?
5. What do we do when an out-of-state gifted student transfers to Georgia? Does the student automatically receive gifted services?
6. What are the state requirements for teachers who serve gifted students through a cluster model?
7. What are the state requirements for teachers who serve gifted students through a collaborative model?
8. How do you rank students using the rubric?
9. How do you place students using the rubric?
