Kids in four districts won’t have to worry about any prepping this year. There are four new gifted and talented programs what won’t use the OLSAT or the NNAT-2 tests for admissions into the coveted program. The four new programs will have their first entry point into the third grade (not kindergarten like the rest of the G&T programs sprinkled across the city). The four programs are launching in districts that currently have no gifted programs so the city now can boast that every school district across the city does now have a G&T program for students. Here’s the list of the new third grade G&T classes:
- South Bronx District 7
- Crotona Park District 12
- Bed-Stuy District 16
- Ocean Hill/Brownsville’s District 23
The DOE will admit students to these four programs based upon a variety of measures like academic performance in K to 2nd grade, attendance, fast learner, highly curious and motivated. It sounds like some of these are objective while other measures are pure subjective based upon a teacher’s opinion.
If you’re not one of the lucky ones living near these schools make sure you start preparing for the upcoming NYC Gifted and Talented test with free practice questions at Testing Mom.
