Los Angeles Unified School District typically supports a population of 70,000 identified gifted/talented learners each year. Gifted/Talented Programs uses multiple screening, referral, and identification pathways to maintain equity and access. The District identifies gifted/talented learners in seven categories: Intellectual Ability, High Achievement Ability, Specific Academic Ability, Visual Arts Ability, Performing Arts Ability, Creative Ability, and Leadership Ability. Additionally, the District conducts a universal screening assessment of all second-grade students districtwide using the Otis Lennon School Ability Test (OLSAT-8). The Targeted Identification Program (TIP) addresses the needs of low-referring, at-risk schools to drive identification and program access; results have been highly effective. This session will explore how all of these pathways work in tandem to identify diverse gifted/talented learners across the entire District and maintain equitable access to programs and services.
