Procedure for Nomination
Teachers, counselors, or parents/guardians may nominate students for the gifted and talented program at any time. Some students may be automatically nominated based on scores from universal screeners administered each semester or state testing.
Students in grades 7-12 may nominate themselves or other students in grades 7-12.
The nomination procedure will begin by completing the CISD G/T Nomination Form and submitting it to the campus counselor or designee.
The principal or designee will solicit information from appropriate school personnel who have knowledge of the nominated student’s characteristics.
The principal or designee will gather all data needed and complete the identification matrix.
Students new to the district will be eligible for nomination during the next regular screening period, if they miss the scheduled screening period for the newly enrolled school year.
Students who have participated in a G/T Program prior to entering the district will be placed provided their transfer records indicate they were admitted to a comparable program.
Nominations for grades K-12 must be submitted to the counselor or designee by the appointed date (usually before Christmas break).
Procedure for Screening and Selection
The screening / selection committee will be composed of an administrator, counselor, and other appropriate personnel.
The screening/selection committee will review and evaluate appropriate data and will make the final decision for placement options in the G/T program, based on the screening matrix.
The counselor or designee will be responsible for notifying the student and the student’s parents/guardians of the placement decision.
Screening will be conducted by December for grades 1 through 12 and by February for Kindergarten.
The identification criteria will include the following:
Logical and spatial reasoning assessment
