2018-19 Grades 1-5 GT Assessment Information
Students are assessed through a formal process. First - 12th grades are assessed during the fall semester, and Kindergarten is assessed during the spring semester. Four or five measures are used:
Appeals: A parent/guardian, student, or educator may request an appeal of the Campus Committee’s decision within 30 days of the date of notification. Parents may initiate an appeal by completing an appeal form after they have met with the campus GT Specialist.
Furlough: Upon written request of the parent/guardian, a student may be granted a leave of absence from Gifted & Talented services. A furlough may be granted for reasons such as class schedule conflicts, student illness, serious illness or death of a family member, and short term relocation of the family.
Exiting Procedures: Exiting of students from the Gifted & Talented program is based on multiple criteria including student performance in the program. Exiting is finalized by committee decision after consultation with parents and students regarding the most appropriate educational placement.
Transfer Students already identified as GT: A student receiving Gifted & Talented services from another district that transfers to Eanes ISD may complete a Transfer Referral Form. Once the Referral Form and complete records are received by the campus, the student will be assessed following Eanes ISD GT guidelines. Placement decisions will be made in a timely manner after receiving the the completed Transfer Referral Form.
Transfer Students NOT already identified as GT: A student that is not receiving Gifted & Talented services from another district that transfers to Eanes ISD will have the opportunity to be assessed for GT during the next assessment period.
