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.
- Grades K-8: All students will be screened for possible gifted identification using the STAR assessment in Math and Reading. This will be completed three times each year.
- Grade 1 & 4: Ability Assessment- Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) form 8
- Grade 2 & 5: Achievement Assessment - Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) (Math/Reading reassessment as needed)
Parents may submit a Referral to request assessment for their child 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. Academic testing window begins August through the end of April. (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.
