Gifted and Talented LOGO

Forms for nomination may be obtained from the elementary, junior high, and high school offices or downloaded from the attached PDF.  Nominations should be returned to the school office by Friday, April 26.

The gifted and talented program of Coleman I.S.D. accepts parent nominations.  Parents of First through Eleventh grade students who think their child might benefit from such a program are invited to nominate him or her.

A student that qualifies for this program may possess a number of the following traits:

  • Reads at an early age and has advanced understanding
  • Reads widely and intensively in areas of special interest
  • Is highly curious
  • Displays creativeness and inventiveness
  • Appears to have remarkable ability in an academic area

Identification for entrance into the program will be based on a number of criteria with the selection being made by a committee of educators.  Nomination does not necessarily mean acceptance into the program; however, it will initiate the identification process.

This program will require extra time and work on the part of the student involved, but most often produces a positive result.

Children already in the program need not be nominated as they will automatically remain in the program until exited.

Forms for nomination may be obtained from the elementary, junior high, and high school offices or downloaded from the attached PDF.  Nominations should be returned to the school office by Friday, April 26.
