  • Kindergarten Gifted and Talented Referrals

    Referrals for kindergarten Gifted and Talented screening take place December 2 through 20 at 8:00 am. In accordance with state standards, kindergarten students are identified and placed in the CISD Quest program by March 1st.

    Identified kinder students receive Gifted and Talented services through a weekly pullout program. GT Specialists guide students through a conceptual understanding that people use self-knowledge, interest, and strengths to relate to the world around them. 

    If you are interested in referring your child for the program, please fill this online referral form.

    Results will be emailed once testing is completed at all CISD elementary campuses.

    Deadline:  December 20th at 8:00 a.m.
