Please check the "Placements and Acceleration" page on this website for more info on CDM/SSA assessments. These assessments are only conducted in February and the Spring respectively. Nominations are due earlier; so, please check the county site for applications. Duke TIP letters - these letters went out to 7th grade AIG students (in ELA classes) during September. Directions for TIP applications are located on the letter; however, Collegeboard (where you apply to take the SAT) and ACT.org directions are not. To apply to take the SAT/ACT, you will need to go to www.collegeboard.org or www.act.org - If your child is not identified as AIG but you are still interested in Duke TIP, you may also apply by going to TIP's website: (tip.duke.edu/programs/7th-grade-talent-search) and using your child's EOG scores.
