Texas Education Code, section 29.121, Gifted and Talented means a child who performs at or shows the potential for performing at a 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
All gifted children are not the same. It is important to note that there are not one or two characteristics that an educator can point to in order to say that a student is G/T. It is a combination of characteristics. Some signs that a student might be gifted include, but are not limited to:
Extraordinary memory compared to peers
Exhibits abstract reasoning and problem-solving skills
Kindergarten students who were identified will begin services by March 1.
Students in grades 1st-11th will begin services at the beginning of the next school year.
Transfer students will begin immediately upon receiving written permission from the parent/guardian for the child to participate in services.
