Well, letters and emails are on there way for parents as the NYC gifted and talented placements have been determined by the NYC Dept. of Ed. It looks like the DOE lowered the amount of kids getting offer letters based upon past years’ acceptance rates. Here is the breakdown according to the DOE:
- This year, 8,220 students applied for a seat, compared to 7,242 applications last year
- 69.5 percent (2,507 students) of applying kindergartners received an offer for a seat, a decrease from 79.8 percent (2,901 students) last year
- In total, 53.4 percent of applicants (4,392 students) received an offer, down from 66.2 percent (4,792 students) last year
- The decrease in the total number of offers is due to an adjustment in the G&T enrollment process, and does not reflect any significant decrease in the number of gifted and talented seats available or projected enrollment for next school year.
- Example: In 2015 even though 4,792 students received offers, only 2,941 accepted their offers. In 2014, 4,832 students received offers, and only 2,926 accepted their offers.
