Gifted services are provided by the New Castle Area District under the provisions of Chapter 16 of the PA Code. In order for a student to receive gifted services, eligibility must be determined through a gifted multidisciplinary evaluation conducted by a school psychologist. Gifted services provide specially designed instruction to mentally gifted students, whose needs cannot be met in the regular education classroom.
New Castle School District utilizes a screening process to determine whether a formal gifted evaluation is recommended. However, a parent may request a gifted evaluation at any time.
If you would like more information or need assistance, please contact the Director of Pupil Services or a School Psychologist at 724-656-4763.
