Our mission is to ensure that all children of school age in Bedford County receive the highest quality education appropriate to their individual needs and abilities.


Statement about Referrals

Students may be referred for a gifted education screening anytime throughout the school year. Referrals may be made by a teacher, parent, administrator, guidance counselor, or community member who knows the student. Students may also refer themselves. Referrals should be in writing to the school’s gifted education teacher or school coordinator, administrator, or guidance counselor. Students are tested in the fall and spring.
