According to the Texas Education Code, a ‘gifted and talented student’ is a child who performs at or shows the potential to perform at a remarkably high level of accomplishment when compared to others of the same age, experience, or environment and who:
Exhibits high-performance capability in an intellectual, creative, or artistic area;
Possesses an unusual capacity for leadership; or
Excels in a specific academic field.
If you feel your child exhibits characteristics of giftedness, please complete the nomination form. Nomination forms can be picked up in the Junior HS or High School office by students and/or parents. The nomination form can also be accessed online or via the link in the January parent newsletter. All nomination forms must be submitted to the office by Monday, January 27, 2020.
The next step in the process will be the completion of a parent informational survey and consent to test. This packet will be sent home by Friday, January 31, 2020 and must be returned to the counselor by Friday, February 7, 2020.
We will have an optional informational meeting for parents on Thursday, January 16th at 5:00 p.m. in the Junior High School Library.
