  • Gifted and Talented Program:

    The Carroll ISD Gifted and Talented program is accepting applications for referrals for students in grades 1-4 from August 27 – September 10 at 8:00am. Please complete the google form, print the PDF, and return it to the front office at Rockenbaugh. The referral and PDF is located at this link:

    Referrals for the Gifted and Talented Program may be made by parents, teachers, counselors, community members, or self-nomination. Students may be referred each year, but the prior testing data may be considered valid for two years.


    Elementary students in kindergarten through fourth grade must meet the Phase I Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) criteria in order to move forward to the Phase II portion of the screening process. Phase II involves the Iowa Assessments Achievement test.
