Posted on 11/14/2016

Boerne ISD is now accepting nominations of entering kindergarten for the district's Gifted/Talented Program. Nomination deadline is Friday, December 2.

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 may be found on the Boerne ISD G/T Program website and on each campus G/T Program website.

Parents may also contact their child's campus G/T Coordinator to obtain a nomination form. Contact Shelly Brewster, Fair Oaks Ranch Elementary, at 357-4807; Linda Laymon, Kendall Elementary, at 357-4607; Marcie Warner, Curington Elementary, at 357-4007; Elizabeth Stroman, Cibolo Creek Elementary, at 357-4407; or Jennifer Howell, Fabra Elementary, at 357-4207.
