As mandated by the Texas State Plan for the Education of Gifted/Talented Students, students identified as gifted will receive specialized instruction to enable them to reach their fullest potential. Most teachers at Casis are certified G/T instructors and have received 30 hours of specialized training. Teachers complete six hours of additional study annually.
Students identified as gifted are clustered within a mixed-abilities classroom. All students are flexibly grouped within the classroom to meet their instructional needs. Teachers use a variety of strategies to challenge and enrich the learning of gifted students, including exploring subjects in greater depth, independent study, and fewer practice activities.
A student must be nominated by a parent or teacher during the Fall or Spring nomination window. For more information, consult with your child’s classroom teacher, the campus GT representative (advocate), or an administrator.
