• Gifted and Talented (G/T) Referrals and Testing 2021-2022

     

    GIFTED AND TALENTED

    The identification and selection of students is determined through a comprehensive, three-step process conducted by a committee which uses multiple and specific criteria.

    1. Referral

    Students may be referred by the parent(s), peers, teacher(s), other professional personnel, and/or themselves. This year, there will be an online district testing portal. This portal will only be open during the referral window and will include parental permission to test, evaluate, and receive gifted program services. Parents of students who have been referred by individuals other than their parents will be contacted to complete the online referral form.  No student may be denied access to the Humble ISD Gifted and Talented Program on the basis of race, creed, or handicapping conditions. Referrals should be completed in the online portal on the Advanced Learning and Services website. The portal will be available and open during the referral window September 1- 30, 2021
