Marshall County School District Gifted Program

over 2 years ago

The Marshall County School District gifted program is a county wide program used to meet  the needs and challenges of gifted students. Intellectually gifted services for students grades 2-6 are offered to identified students. Gifted services are provided by a properly endorsed teacher for a minimum of 5 hours per week in a self contained setting. 

Program Goals and Objectives

The Marshall County School District recognizes that students with identified gifts and talents may require differentiated instruction and opportunities. Programming must be responsive to individual needs and must recognize the talents and cultural diversity of the district's population. Through the identification process, specific areas will be targeted for instruction that will develop each student's individual gifts. 

Student Referral
A student may be referred by a teacher, administrator, counselor, parent, peer, self, or any other person having reason to believe that the student may be intellectually gifted. All referrals should be given to the gifted Contact Person.
Appeal Process
If a parent or guardian is in disagreement with the eligibility decisions, an appeal request must be submitted in writing to the Gifted Coordinator. The parent or guardian fills out the Appeal Form and submits it to the Marshall County School District Office. Applications must be received within 30 days of the date of the eligibility decisions letter. Only a parent or guardian may submit an application of appeal. The LSC will review appeals, conduct hearings, and notify the parent of the decision of the meeting.
