Gifted Identification Update

With the closure of Prince William County Schools due to COVID-19, the timeline for gifted identification has been affected. The division-level Gifted Identification/Placement Committees will meet to review cases and make decisions regarding eligibility as soon as possible when PWCS reopens. We will continue to keep you updated as the situation evolves. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the gifted resource teacher at your child's school.



 SIGNET is the Gifted Education Program within Prince William County Public Schools and is for students from grades 4 through 12. 

SIGNET at Fred Lynn is a pull-out program where identified gifted students attend once a week for acceleration and extension activities in a gifted-only setting. Students have to be found eligible for gifted services through Prince William County Public Schools in order to attend SIGNET. 

If your child is already in SIGNET and will be attending Fred Lynn in the fall, your child will remain in the SIGNET program. Permission forms to attend SIGNET will be sent home during the first week of school. 

In order for your child to be evaluated for services, you must complete a permission form and parent report about your child. From there, your child will be given two aptitude tests in addition to providing work samples that show your child's academic strengths. Students will be informed in writing whether they have been placed for services. Students may be evaluated at any point during the school year, but the process may take up to three months to complete.

Ms. Rowe will be at the 7th and 8th grade Back to School Night on September 10th. If you would like more information about SIGNET, please use the QR code below.
