In January 2014, we conducted a parent survey regarding many aspects of gifted programming within the district. The survey went out to over 7,000 parents of children who have one or more areas of gifted identification, and 957 responses were collected. Parents of gifted learners were asked a variety of questions to gauge understanding of identification procedures, district services, and communication.
