Gifted & Talented Indicators

District and Campus Ratings

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.

Areas For Improvement

  • Embed supports for GT students into each classroom by continuing to require all teachers to participate in GT training within their first year of employment in CSISD.
  • In addition to the initial level 1 GT training, all teachers will receive annual training in supporting the needs of gifted students.
