 Gifted & Talented Appeal Process  

The parent/guardian may appeal decisions in writing to the Director of Gifted and Talented within 10 school  days of receiving the letter of recommendation. The letter of appeal must request a district level meeting to  seek a resolution. At the meeting, the parent/guardian may present data showing the need for gifted  identification or gifted programming options. Following the meeting, the Director of Gifted and Talented and/or  designee will consult with the student’s classroom teacher(s), and the school’s administration to determine their  recommendation. The parent/guardian will be notified within five school days of the meeting. 

If the parent/guardian is dissatisfied with the recommendation from the Director of Gifted and Talented, an appeal may be made in writing to the Chief Student Success Officer within 10 school days of receiving the letter of  recommendation. The Chief Student Success Officer will review the process and evidence and will respond in  writing to the parent/guardian within 10 school days of receiving the letter of appeal. The decision of the Chief  Student Success Officer shall be final.
