Should I have a student tested for giftedness?
Students with gifted and talented abilities often display advanced characteristics as compared with other students the same age. If several G/T characteristics are observed on a regular basis over time, Gifted and Talented testing should be considered in order to identify possible educational needs and provide appropriate services.
How do I refer a student for G/T testing?
Parents wishing to refer their child for G/T testing should complete a district referral form found on the LISD G/T web page.
LISD staff members are also encouraged to refer students for G/T testing and placement. Look in AWARE to see if the student has been referred previously, and contact parents before filling out the Staff Referral Google form.
Our fall referral window is from August 11 – October 1. Any referrals after October 1 will be processed in the spring.
