Gifted Services

Welcome to the Whitehall City Schools Gifted Services webpage. We are happy to share that our school district serves gifted identified students in grades 2-12 who have a gifted identification in superior cognitive and/or specific academic ability. In Ohio, gifted services are not mandated. Public school districts are required to identify students as gifted in mathematics, reading, superior cognitive ability, and creative thinking. Public school districts are not mandated to provide gifted services, but Whitehall City Schools does provide gifted education services to qualifying students. Students who participate in district-led gifted service are supported through a Written Education Plan (WEP) that is shared with parents/guardians twice a year.
