The Talent Development Program is responsible for the identification and service of students identified as gifted in the Ashland City Schools. Testing for gifted identification is done through grade level screening of grade five in the month of October and grade two in the spring.  Individual testing for all grade levels is offered throughout the school year. Screening for gifted identification in the Visual and Performing Arts occurs in the winter and the spring. Referral forms for gifted identification are available below on this page, at each school, or by contacting Kimberly Bracken, Gifted Coordinator at 419.289.1117 ext. 2248.
