KRS 157.230 requires all school districts to operate programs for resident exceptional children, primary through grade twelve (12).

704 KAR 3:285 deals specifically with programs for gifted and talented students.

In Cumberland County, students are placed in the primary talent pool, grades K - 3, beginning in the spring of the kindergarten year. This process is informal and ongoing throughout a student's time in the primary grades. Primary Talent Pool students (PTP) are in the top 25% of their grade level. 

Additionally, formal identification for students in grades 4 - 12 begins in the fall of the 4th grade year and is also ongoing throughout a student's education. According to regulation, students can be identified in any of the following areas: General Intellect, Specific Aptitude in math, science, language arts, and/or social studies, Creativity, Psychosocial/Leadership, or Visual/Performing Arts.
