SISD invites GT nominations
STOCKDALE -- The Stockdale Independent School District (ISD) includes a Gifted and Talented program for students with a potential to excel in general intellectual ability. The Gifted and Talented Nomination and Screening Committee has begun the nomination and screening process for students in grades first through 11th. The nominations period will be two weeks, ending Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 4 p.m. After nominations have been placed, permission slips for testing will be sent home, and testing will begin.
Approximately 3 to 5 percent of students enrolled will qualify for inclusion in this program. A student may be nominated to the Gifted and Talented program in a variety of ways. A student may be nominated for the program by teachers, counselors, parents, or other interested persons. Once a student is nominated for the program, a variety of information is gathered on each student. No single test score or nomination will qualify a child for the program.
Once all the information is gathered, a Selection Committee meets to determine which students qualify for the program. The program focuses on developing higher level thinking skills, creative thinking skills, and research skills with an emphasis in the four core areas of instruction.
If an individual wishes to nominate a student for this program, he/she may come by the student’s school and request the necessary nomination form. All forms must be completed and returned to the school by 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 30.
If a person wishing to nominate a student is unable to come to the school, he/she may call the school and the form will be sent. The form also can be accessed on the Stockdale ISD website at http://www.stockdaleisd.org/vnews/display.v/SEC/Extracurricular%7CGT. Students who enter the program must have parental permission prior to admission.
For information about this program or the selection process, contact Roxanne Seidel at 830-996-3551.
