The Mayfield City Schools are committed to an educational program that recognizes the unique needs and talents of the individual student. The Gifted Program, an integral part of this commitment, is designed to meet the specific needs of intellectually gifted students. The Gifted program provides a structure that not only strengthens the academic abilities of gifted students but also promotes multiple opportunities for individual growth.
Mayfield conducts Grade Level Assessments each fall to screen for potential gifted identification.
- Grade 1: Ability Assessment- Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) form 7
- Grade 2: Achievement Assessment - Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) (Math & Reading)
- Grade 4: Ability Assessment-CogAT form 7
- Grade 5: Achievement Assessment-MAP (Math & Reading)
Parents may submit a Referral to request assessment for their student at any time. Once the referral is received, a Permission to Test Form is necessary to schedule the assessment. Individual assessments will not be conducted without parent/guardian permission. (Please find the Referral & Permission to Test form links in Gifted Forms).
Gifted Intervention Specialists (GIS) provide direct instruction and staff support in each of our buildings K-12. Please locate the GIS webpages tab to connect with your child's building GIS.
