The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) requires all public school districts to identify students who are gifted according to ODE criteria. Once identified, the responsibility for providing services to gifted students is left to the decision of each local Board of Education. As a result, gifted services vary greatly from district to district in Ohio. Because we strive to meet the needs of all learners, the Euclid City School District takes its responsibility to identify and serve gifted students very seriously.
We screen students throughout the district at various grade levels to determine their ability and achievement scores on nationally norm "ed" assessment tools. Then we offer services to those students who are identified. Euclid City Schools is committed to providing a continuum of programs and services for all students. Gifted students may need curriculum modifications, acceleration, self-contained classes and/or enrichment. Instruction is differentiated to provide all students appropriate pacing and support necessary for advanced-level learning.
