Exit Policy

A student may be considered to exit from services if it is in his/her best interest and/or if Gifted/Talented (G/T) services do not seem to be the most educationally appropriate for the student. The petition for exit may be initiated by

  • request from the parent to exit the student
  • request for a teacher, counselor, or administrator to exit the student; or
  • request from the student to exit services.

Exit from services will be accomplished by petitioning the selection committee for removal. A conference shall be held within ten (10) working days of the request to exit. This conference should include the student, parent(s)/guardian(s), building adminstrator, G/T teacher(s), classroom teacher(s), and/or counselor.

  • If a teacher initiates the petition, that teacher shall provide documentation to support his/her contention for removal from services.
  • If a student or parent(s)/guardian(s) requests removal, the district will honor that request after a conference with the selection committee or its representative.

Note: Should a student exit from services, the process shall be accomplished in such a manner to avoid adding undue pressure to the student or parent(s)/guardian(s) and without prejudice. It shall be recognized that the purpose of G/T services is to best serve the academic and affective needs of the child. Once exited, a student must complete the screening/testing process to be identified G/T.
