Based on what gifted services are offered, I would suggest you request testing for your daughter near the end of the kindergarten year. Her academic skills will be more solid and the testing results will have more validity due to her age. If the school district refuses, and you are certain of your daughter's advanced abilities, then you might consider having testing done privately. The district is balking now at curriculum compacting or grade-skipping because your daughter's abilities have not yet been documented. With solid results, you will have more to go on. Good luck.
