Gifted and Talented

 

FAYETTEVILLE ISD

2019-2020 Talented and Gifted Referral Information

 

Fayetteville ISD is seeking students in our district for the Gifted and Talented Program that are achieving beyond that which may be expected of their peers in general intellectual ability and creative and productive thinking.

 

Program Goal

 

The general goal of Fayetteville ISD’s Gifted and Talented Program is to provide a differentiated educational experience for identified students in the district by providing instructional opportunities and other services designed to meet the unique needs of these students. These programs shall provide an appropriately differentiated curriculum and serve as an outlet for self-directed learning, thinking, research and communication. Gifted services are available in Kindergarten-12th grades. 

 

 

The Assessment Process

 

  • The state requires annual testing and a minimum of 3 assessments including quantitative and qualitative data. 
  • We use a combination of nationally normed standardized tests for ability, reasoning and achievement, as well as anecdotal data from teachers and/or parents. 
  • Additional data is collected as needed by the GT Coordinator.
  • Placement decisions are made at the campus level by the GT Committee.
