Gifted and Talented Information


Gifted and Talented Referrals for Spring 2019

Midlothian ISD provides a program for students in K-12 who have been identified as exceptionally able. The Gifted and Talented Program at all levels is designed to provide opportunities to meet unique social, emotional, and intellectual needs of gifted and talented students. Referrals for the Gifted and Talented Program may be made by parents, teachers, students, counselors, or community members. Students may be referred each year, but prior testing data may be considered valid for 2 years.

Referral Windows for Spring 2019 Grades 1-5

The referral window for grades 1-5 will be accepted from March 18, 2019 through March 29, 2019, with testing being conducted in April and May. Parents of 1st-5th grade students identified as Gifted and Talented will be notified in writing by May 30, 2019 in the final report card.

Parents may request a referral packet by contacting your child’s teacher or school counselor. If you have questions regarding referral or testing for the GT program, please contact your child’s counselor.

There will be a GT Parent Information Meeting on March 4th, 2019 at 5:30 at the Midlothian ISD Administration Building Board Room. All parents interested are invited to attend. There will also be GT Parent Information Meetings held at each campus providing the same information.

Longbranch meeting will be on 3/6/19 @ 7:30 AM in the Collaboration Room

Pay it Forward!

This is the last week for our Pay it Forward Fridays, but we hope our students will continue to show kindness to others every day! We return to Genius Hour on March 22nd.
