R.E.A.C.H.

WELCOME to our R.E.A.C.H. page! 

Just what does R.E.A.C.H. mean anyway??? 
It means...
Recognizing and Enriching the Academically Creative at Hardin Jefferson 

Just how can a kid qualify for GT? 
Nominations - either nomination of self, by the teacher or by the parent justifies the beginning of the screening process. 

What happens next? 
PAPERWORK - teachers and parents must complete some documents. Once I have permission to screen a child, I give a battery of screening measures to determine intelligence, academic success and creativity. All information collected is placed on the matrix we have in place that determines the rank in criteria of all scores. Students must have 4 of 5 criteria mastered in order to qualify and be admitted to the GT Enrichment Class. Every campus follows this procedure to ensure continuity across the district.
