In Grade Four, students are given a Standardized Test called the CCAT (Canadian Cognitive Abilities Test). From the results of this test, students are selected for further more individualized testing. It is this further testing that is used to determine if the student meets the HWDSB criteria for Gifted. At the HWDSB, all students are tested for gifted using this process.
Students in Grade 1 – 4 do NOT attend the Enrichment and Innovation Centre. Programming needs are met at the school level and in consultation with the teacher, principal, Learning Resource Teacher and Consultant. At times, the Itinerant Teachers for Gifted may be contacted by the Special Education Consultant programming support.
