The Austin ISD Elementary Gifted and Talented (GT) services include instruction by a teacher with the appropriate GT Foundations training within a small group of identified GT students in the general education classroom. This allows for opportunities for curricular tasks that include greater depth, complexity, and pacing while working independently and with other GT students as well as students not identified.
Parents/guardians of identified GT students at the elementary level should expect a GT Student Services Summary each semester completed by the teacher or another form of documentation of the academic options provided. Academic options provided vary based on campus and teacher decisions.
For more information about GT services, visit the GT page.
