Eligibility for Services

The district ensures there are appropriate procedures in place for the assessment of students, who are culturally diverse, economically disadvantaged, have a disability or have limited English proficiency.  Tests from the State approved testing list are used in all testing situations. When necessary and appropriate, accommodations as allowed by the specific test publisher's manual are used.

Lake Local will serve students that meet the following criteria:

Grade Identification Criteria for Services
3-8

For service in Reading / Writing:

  • By scoring in the superior cognitive range on an ODE approved gifted identifier OR
  • By scoring in the 95th percentile or higher in reading./writing on a ODE approved gifted identifier two times.
3-8

For service in Mathematics:

  • By scoring in the superior cognitive range on an ODE approved gifted identifier OR
  • By scoring in the 95th percentile or higher in math on a ODE approved gifted identifier two times.

*Although schools are required to identify students as gifted, service is not mandated therefore all identified students may not be served. By law, Lake is limited as to the number of students that can be served in various service settings. Subjective criteria may not be used to exclude who would otherwise be eligible for service.

Please contact your child’s building principal if you have any questions or concerns about your child’s placement.
