SCUC Gifted & Talented Referral Form

This form is used to refer your child for G/T testing or gain permission to proceed if your child has been referred by his/her teacher. The following form will also give us more information on the observations you see in your child at home. The G/T program in SCUCISD identifies students with high academic potential, gifts, and talents and provides them challenging academic experiences, rigorous career and college preparation, and acceleration opportunities while nurturing healthy social and emotional development. Referral does not assure placement in G/T services but does assure consideration for services. You can access our G/T program overview by viewing the district G/T website at
