• Students are admitted into the HISD Gifted and Talented (G/T) Program only after they have been identified through gifted and talented testing.  All students who are identified as gifted and talented will retain their G/T identification label while enrolled at a HISD campus.  No re-testing is required for middle school or high school.  

     

    • HISD students who have already been identified as G/T by HISD and currently attend an HISD school do not need testing. 
    • G/T identified students who leave the district for more than 60 academic days without a G/T furlough must re-submit their G/T paperwork for their G/T label to be reinstated.  This includes students returning to HISD from another district or private school.  No G/T testing is required. 
    • Students enrolling in HISD who have previously been identified as G/T by another school district, must submit their G/T paperwork to the G/T coordinator at their HISD campus, for consideration of a G/T label transfer. If approved, the student will not need testing.  If not approved, the student will need to participate in G/T testing.  
    • Students who have not been previously identified as G/T need to participate in G/T testing.
