GIFTED & TALENTED Indicators

CSISD will ...provide an array of services, programs and opportunities to meet the needs of each student, and provide the opportunity for each student to reach his or her full potential.
 
 
Background:  Students are nominated annually by parents and school staff for testing for G/T.  Students who qualify for the program are eligible for pull-out services from the enrichment specialist on their campus (K-6th Grade).  All students (even those not identified as G/T) have the opportunity for enrichment projects and participation in groups with their campus enrichment specialist. G/T identification in CSISD is based on academic indicators only.  CSISD teachers earn endorsements in G/T allowing them to differentiate instruction for these students in their classes.  Over 1,500 (11.9%) of students across all grade levels are identified as G/T, as compared to the state rate of 7.7% identified. At the K-6 level, G/T students are served directly by a G/T specialist, and in grades 7-12 students have opportunities to enroll in advanced courses such as Honors, Pre-AP, and AP.
