What's ATYP? PDF Print E-mail

A Gifted & Talented program provided through the Kent ISD.  Click here to read more

One of the greatest challenges we have at the ISD is getting word out about the services we provide for gifted children through the ATYP program.  While it is not designed for every outstanding student, it is often the last option for optimal learning for the highly gifted child.  Usually the phone calls from frustrated parents or schools begin in January, after trying a semester of services in the home district. Unfortunately, January is often too late for the student to sign up for the required testing needed to be eligible for ATYP consideration.
OCTOBER 20th  6:30-8:00 is our annual meeting for parents and educators to learn about the testing that is necessary for ATYP placement. Our executive director will highlight the nuances of WHY to sign up and WHAT signing up for testing will deliver to the family and HOW we help schools plan for servicing.
Forest Hills Northern Trails is hosting testing for EXPLORE (grades 2-5), but the only dates open are Jan 24 and Feb. 21 with registration due dates in December.
Forest Hills Northern Hills Middle school is the ONLY NUMATS testing site in the area and the deadline for that Feb. 7 test is Jan. 7 (Otherwise young students have to test with HS students in the ACT/SAT college prep format and even those dates are limited to Feb. 7 and before.)
