Important Notes about Gifted Identification
Students need to meet the criteria for gifted identification in 2 of the 3 Dimensions (A, B, or C). Once a child meets two dimensions, their identification will remain with them throughout their K-12 education in South Carolina public schools. Future non-qualifying scores will not impact their identification.
