Transfer Students

Portability means that a student’s identification in one or more categories of giftedness transfers to any district in the state of Colorado. Gifted programming must continue according to the receiving district’s programming options. Portability of identification is a part of the student’s permanent record and Advanced Learning Plan.

ECS process for reviewing students transferring into the district:

  1. Family contacts the school's office to notify gifted education department of their child’s identification.

  2. Gifted education department contacts family to ensure receipt of all documents.

  3. Gifted education department reviews all documents and determines next steps according to student’s needs.

The rule for portability does not apply to students moving into Colorado from another state. However, the receiving district will review the student’s records for evidence of giftedness, and then determine whether additional assessment is necessary to confirm if the student meets Colorado criteria for gifted identification.
