LEARNING EXPERIENCES FOR ACADEMIC DISCOVERIES

MATH TELESCOPING TESTING DATES


  • JULY Testing: Online July 19-29 & Paper July 19-22

    • Registration Opens: June 14

    • Registration Closes: June 22


In order to telescope in math, a student must take a grade level end of course exam and score 90% or higher. For example, a first grader would take an end of course 2nd grade exam. If that child scored 90% or higher on it, then the next year as a 2nd Grader, that student would take 3rd Grade math. If you are wondering if this could be a good fit for your child, reach out to your child's math teacher to discuss this opportunity. If you choose to move forward with testing, then contact the Assessment Department at GCISD Administration Office

(817-251-5524) to schedule and pay for testing.
