Does My Child Need Testing?
HISD students who have already been identified as G/T by HISD and currently attend an HISD school DO NOT need testing. Students who have previously been identified as G/T retain their G/T label all the way through high school, as long as they stay in HISD. Students who leave the district for more than 60 days must be re-tested for G/T identification. (Furlough could potentially prevent this.) All current HISD 5th grade students not identified as G/T will be tested on their current HISD campus and DO NOT need further testing.
Students who are not currently enrolled in an HISD school will need to complete an application and test at Pershing during one of the dates listed above.
