eCSSS Navigational Guide: We no longer require annual gifted and talented summary reports from schools. Instead, all students who have been identified through proper screening should be entered into eCSSS. The eCSSS Navigational Guide shows how this process can be completed.

Instructions on entering students into eCSSS is found below.
