Nomination and Testing Windows

Who Should Be Tested?

  • Staff members and parents can refer students for GT testing within the first three weeks of school or in May.
  • Please review characteristics of gifted students before referring. Research online and see if your child has the potential for being gifted.
  • Ask the campus GT teacher questions as well as your child’s previous classroom teachers if G.T. behaviors have been observed.
  • Usually 5% of students qualify for Gifted Programs.
  • Very bright students may not qualify. Early readers, all As, and high STAAR scores are excellent, but that isn’t always indicative of a student being gifted.
