Application & Testing Information

Jeffco’s GT Department identifies students as gifted at all of our district neighborhood, charter and option schools in all grades K-12 as per Colorado Department of Education (CDE) guidelines.  All students who are identified as gifted qualify for an Advanced Learning Plan (ALP).  Additionally, some students who qualify as gifted may be eligible for enrollment at one of our GT Center schools.  The application processes for GT identification and for GT Center school access are both similar, yet distinct.

We have 2 separate application processes: PLEASE APPLY ON ONLY ONE APPLICATION
Click here for GT Identification Referral: This form should be completed for students who are only seeking GT identification for an Advanced Learning Plan (ALP), and who are planning to remain at their current neighborhood, option or charter school, and not interested in attending a GT Center school. (This application is open year round)

Click here for GT Center application: This application should be completed for students who are seeking access to one of our GT Center schools, even if a student is not yet identified as GT.  This application closes at 4:00pm on October 15, 2018.

If families are unsure of whether they may want to enroll in a GT Center school, they should complete the GT Center application, as the processes for both are very similar.  Our identification team can make both the GT identification and Center School decisions based on the same body of evidence.


Testing is October 27, 2018 and November 3, 2018.  All testing will be at Creighton Middle School, 50 S. Kipling St.  Lakewood, CO 80226.
Emails with testing times will be sent in mid-September.

For both application processes, parents will also need to complete the GT Parent Narrative, which is a separate form.

Both GT Identification Referral and GT Center Application decisions are based on a Body of Evidence, including both qualitative and quantitative data.  Please see our GT Identification & Assessments page for more information on the ID process in Jeffco.

If you have additional outside testing data (WISC IV, DAS, Stanford-Binet, other cognitive/IQ testing, etc..) you would like us to consider for the application, please send to:
