Parents, it is that time of the year again. We have the nomination forms for the GT Program. If you would like a form, you may request one through your classroom teacher, or you may pick up one in the main office. This does not mean that your child will automatically be placed in the GT Program. However, your child will then be considered as we meet with our GT committee. There is a set criteria that is used to determine placement.


Parents or guardians of children receiving special education and related services have been mailed the Maryland Special Education Involvement Survey from the Maryland State Department of Education, Division of Special Education/Early Intervention Services.
Parents are asked to complete the survey and return it in the postage paid envelope by May 18, 2020. The survey may also be completed online. Please look for details in your survey packet. Your feedback will help guide efforts to improve special education and related services in your local school system. To learn more, please visit
