    Parent(s)/guardian(s) of transfer students already identified as GT in another school system should contact Anthony Vargas after enrolling in MCPS.  Be ready to provide a copy of previous testing and identification information. Every attempt will be made not to duplicate testing that is deemed valid and reliable. Decisions regarding transfer students are handled on a case-by-case basis and parent(s)/guardian(s) will be notified of a placement decision or whether or not additional information/testing is needed.
