Every three years, each district in the state of North Carolina revises their comprehensive plan to serve
gifted students K-12. The plan must be approved by our Local Board of Education and then submitted to
the state. This year we are revising our 2019 CMS Gifted Plan to create the 2022 CMS Gifted Plan.
As part of our revision process, we are gathering feedback from stakeholders across CMS through surveys.
Please complete this survey. There is one link for parents and one for the Piedmont student.
