HGT Update

DPS offers cognitive ability testing, the CogAT, for all 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders each year to determine magnet eligibility status. Test results may also be used as part of a body of evidence for Highly Gifted and Talented identification. 

If your child is already magnet eligible, there is no need for him or her to take the CogAT test. If you have any questions regarding your child’s magnet eligibility status, please feel free to reach out to me. For more information on the CogAT, please see the attached information regarding the test. If you would like to have your child participate in this optional testing, please go to the following link and register your child by midnight October 13th.
