GT Referral and Assessment NEWS
All GT Assessment for the Spring semester has been completed in grades K-12. Letters of Placement or Non-Placement for Gifted & Talented Services were delivered to campuses on 04/01/19 and should be coming home via student during that week.
Referrals for assessment for the 2019-2020 school year should be made to your child's campus counselor or to Amy Rogers (District Advanced Academics Coordinator); Forms are available from your campus counselor or online HERE.
Referrals for NEW transfer students can occur throughout the year, however, testing takes place at three specified times per year.
- Fall - Out of District GT Transfer students only (as needed should sending district criteria not match WISD)
- Winter - Kinder Only
- Winter/Spring - Grades 1+
Information regarding the referral process, how students are assessed, and how students are served in Willis ISD (see attached slideshow below).
