Larkspur News!

August 17, 2019

 It was a wonderful first week of school. I love watching the students and staff settle into a routine that will last the rest of the school year. I want to thank everyone for all their hard work with carline as I know it can be a little unnerving at times.

Important Information: Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT)


Universal Screening

As part of the Douglas County School District's Universal Screening Process, ALL students in Grade 3 and 6 will take the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT 7) the week of September 9th. This assessment indicates the level pattern of cognitive development of a student in comparison to grade and age mates. These general reasoning abilities, which start developing at birth and continue through early adulthood, are influenced by experiences gained both in and out of school. 


 If you child is in 3rd or 6th grade please see detailed information about this assessment here: universal Screening Information.


Gifted Identification Referral Testing

If your child is in grades K, 1, 2, 4, 5, and you believe he/she needs an evaluation for Gifted Identification and Services, you may refer your child for testing by initiating the Gifted Identification Process. NOTE: Requesting thai assessment automatically initiates the process to evaluate for Gifted Identification.


Please request CogAT testing for your child by completing the Referral for Gifted Identification linked here. 


If you have any questions related to GT, please contact our GT Coordinator Mrs. Dietz
