The Palmyra Area School District conducts child find activities for children who may be eligible for gifted services under Pennsylvania 22 Pa Code Chapter 16. Parents who suspect their child
is in need of specially designed instruction beyond that required in 22 PA School Code Chapter 4 (relating to academic standards and assessment) may request in writing for their child to be
evaluated under the criteria of 22 PA Code §16.22. If a student is both gifted and eligible for special education, the procedures in IDEA and Chapter 14 shall take precedence.
In compliance with state law, services designed to the unique needs of gifted students are provided. Students are identified individually based on guidelines and regulations embodied in state
law under Chapter 16. Those students who possess superior intelligence scores or meet multiple criteria indicating gifted ability may receive services. If your child is suspected to qualify
for gifted services, you will be notified of evaluation and screening procedures. Requests for screening and evaluation should be made to your child’s building principal or school
