APS Gifted and Talented juries identify students in the talent domains twice a year. Juries will review portfolios and assess performances using normed rubrics. More information can be obtained by contacting GT Leaders in schools. Only students who have been tested by their schools using the Scales for Identifying Gifted Students (SIGS) or Haroutounian Observation Scales and received a 95th percentile or above score will be invited to juries.
