BISD Seeks Gifted/Talented Students
Posted on 01/04/2017

Boerne ISD is accepting nominations of students currently enrolled in grades 1-5 for the district's Gifted/Talented Program. Nominations will be accepted January 9 through February 3. The G/T program serves students identified as gifted in the specific subject areas of language arts/social studies and/or math/science. Identification criteria include test scores, student product ratings, and teacher ratings.

Students gifted in language arts have extensive vocabularies, read widely, elaborate well when speaking, and see relationships in literature. Students gifted in the area of social studies are sensitive to social issues, ask questions that are open-ended or philosophical, and are interested in social themes and complex public issues, explanations, or theories.

Students gifted in math learn mathematical concepts and processes faster than other students, are interested in number and quantitative relationships, analyze mathematical problems, and reason effectively. Students gifted in science are interested in scientific topics, have science hobbies or collections, and are good at exploring, questioning, and investigating.

Parents who think their child exhibits these characteristics and might be overlooked in the identification process may nominate their child to be screened for the G/T Program. Nomination forms are available on the Boerne ISD G/T Program website: www.boerne-isd.net/gtprogram.

Parents may also contact their child's campus G/T Coordinator to obtain a nomination form. Contact Jamie Robinson, Fair Oaks Ranch Elementary, 357-4807; Linda Laymon, Kendall Elementary, 357-4605; Marcie Warner, Curington Elementary, 357-4007; Elizabeth Stroman, Cibolo Creek Elementary, 357-4407; or Jennifer Howell, Fabra Elementary, 357-4207.
