    Referrals for kindergarten Gifted and Talented screening take place Monday, November 27th through Friday, December 15th. 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 out the information on the link below and fill out the attached form.  Please send the form into the RES front office with a self-addressed, stamped envelope. (These envelopes will be use to mail results to you.) 

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

    Deadline:  December 15th at 3:00 pm

    Testing Information

    Testing will start in January and will continue throughout the month until the testing is completed.  Elementary students in kindergarten students must meet the Phase I Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) criteria in order to move forward to the Phase II portion of the screening process. Phase II involves the Iowa Assessments Achievement test.
