SEMINARS and SPEAKERS
Students identified as gifted at Brush High School will have the opportunities to be invited to various seminars that are hosted by the Cuyahoga County Educational Service Center. These seminars are designed to meet the needs of gifted students in several categories. Information about the seminars will be shared with students as the seminars are scheduled by the county ESC.
South Euclid Lyndhurst will schedule motivational or career speakers to come to the high school to talk with gifted students at several times throughout the year. Information will be shared with students as speakers are scheduled.
REFERRAL FORMS FOR GIFTED TESTING
Referral forms are available in the principal's office at each school and on the SEL website.
Although certain services are described, the individual child is very important. If a child does not “qualify” for a certain type of program, every effort will be made to encourage and make accommodations for that child within the regular classroom setting.
Teacher recommendations are not used to exclude from services a student who would otherwise be eligible for services in the superior cognitive and specific academic areas.
