Gifted Testing

I planned to have my gifted child tested this spring. When will that testing take place?

Due to the current school closures, PVUSD gifted testing has been postponed until closures are lifted at our school sites. We anticipate rescheduling testing this summer. Please continue to check our gifted website for more specifics regarding testing sites, times and schedule in the coming months. 

We will contact families that were previously scheduled for gifted testing (at their school sites and/or at the district office) via email as soon as logistics are confirmed. 

You may also choose to take your child to a private provider office; you will schedule this with their offices if and when they should open. If you select outside testing, please refer to our list of approved outside testers.

This remains a quickly evolving situation, and we thank you for your patience and understanding.
