Opportunity for Gifted Students
Whitfield County Schools participates in a yearly gifted screening process. Gifted referrals will be accepted for the 2015-2016 school year for elementary school students from January 20th-30th. Gifted referrals for middle and high school will be accepted from February 23rd-27th. If you have questions, please contact your child’s school.
Teachers are expected to maintain accurate grades for each student in their class. Infinite Campus is used for 4th and 5th grade students to record grades. All kindergarten through third-grade teachers use a standards-based report card to measure student progress with the state standards on a scaled rubric. Grades 4–5 use the numerical format below to report progress.
