Gifted Education Services

Gifted Education Services

Tattnall County Schools provide Gifted services at each school. Students can be referred for the Gifted program in the following ways:

1)A student is referred for consideration by teachers, counselors, administrators, parents/guardians, peers, self or others with knowledge of student’s academic abilities.

2) Students who score at specified levels on nationally norm-referenced tests. The local board of education establishes the score(s) needed for automatic referral.

After a referral has been made a decision-making team from each school uniformly considers information collected on student referrals. The team then decides if it is appropriate to proceed with a formal evaluation. If a formal evaluation is needed the student is referred for Gifted Education Evaluation in Mental Ability, Achievement, Creativity, and Motivation.

To refer a student please contact your local school for further information or the Gifted Coordinator at the TCBOE at 912-557-4726 ext. 1152.
