     GT Referral and Assessment NEWS

    All GT Assessment for the 19-20 fall semester placement/scheduling 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 have come 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, assessment occurs at three specified times per year.

    • Fall - Out of District GT Transfer students only (as needed should sending district criteria not matching WISD)
    • Winter - Kinder Only
    • late Winter/early Spring - Grades 1+

    Information regarding the referral process, how students are assessed, and how students are served in Willis ISD (see attached slideshow below).
