During school closures, intellectual testing for identification as highly gifted (HG) or highly gifted applicable (HGA) has been suspended. Based on how the tests are normed, standardized assessments must be conducted face-to-face by an LAUSD school psychologist in order for the test results to be valid.
As a result, the on-time application for HGM has
been adjusted and will occur in spring 2021.
Highly Gifted Magnets will not be listed in the
Choices application during the on-time application window (October 1 - November 13). Interested applicants may use the late application to apply for an HGM and be considered "on time."
