If you are interested in learning more about the Gifted and Talented Program or wish to determine whether it is something you should pursue for your child.

General Screening for the Gifted and Talented Program in Katy ISD:
All interested students who have not already been screened this school year for the G/T program may pick up a Parent Checklist from the Counselors’ office beginning Monday, November 26.
At the secondary level, students are screened based upon specific subject matter aptitude in one or more content areas. In the screening phase of the identification process, multiple quantitative measures (standardized test scores) and qualitative measures (data gathered from parents and teachers) are examined. Students who meet district criteria for GT placement are eligible to participate in the subject area for which they qualify for the GT program. Screening is available for GT service in the areas of language arts, math, science, and social studies.
The Parent Checklist must be returned to the counseling office no later than 2:30 pm on Friday, January 11. Please note that this is a firm deadline.
Once all the forms are in, previous test scores will be reviewed, and a testing schedule will go home with students who need to be tested.
You may also download the form from GT department’s page on the district website, www.katyisd.org.
Additional Screening for GT Students:
Students who are already in some GT classes, but wish to add other GT courses for next year should pick up a Request for Additional Screening form in the counseling office from November 26 through January 10. You do not need a Parent Checklist.
The Request for Additional Screening forms are also due to the counseling office by 2:30 pm on Friday, January 11.
