Referrals for Gifted and Talented Program being accepted starting April 7
Midlothian Independent School District will accept referrals for the Gifted and Talented Program, for students currently enrolled in Grades 1-11. Referrals will be accepted from April 7-18, 2014. Parents, community members, counselors, and teachers, as well as students themselves may refer potential gifted candidates.
The purpose of the identification process is to locate those students who demonstrate unusually advanced aptitude and commitment to learning. These are the students who will most likely benefit from an academic program that is expanded and enriched.
Referral forms may be obtained from the school counselors and written parental/guardian consent shall be obtained before individual assessment is conducted as part of the screening and identification process.
