Please check back in October for information about requesting testing for Gifted & Talented program placement in the 2015-2016 school year. You may also subscribe to our email alerts to ensure you receive the latest information as soon as it is available.
On March 31, 2014, the New York State Legislature passed a law prohibiting school districts from making “any student promotion or placement decisions based solely or primarily on student performance on the state administered standardized English language arts and mathematics assessments for grades three through eight.”
Given this new legislation the New York City Department of Education will not be making Gifted & Talented placements in grades 4 and 5 in September 2014. In the past, families interested in applying for Gifted and Talented placement for children entering grades 4 and 5 would submit an application in the summer to the Office of Student Enrollment. Eligibility was determined based on the applicant’s scores on the New York State English Language Arts and Mathematics tests and placements were made based on available seats in requested programs.
