Gifted & Talented Program

Farmersville ISD provides a variety of services for academically gifted students. Anyone may nominate a student for the program at the period of annual referrals. Referral forms are available in each campus office or on the Helpful Documents, Forms, Links page of this website and may be submitted to the campus office any time during the referral period.

Assessment and Identification for the Gifted & Talented Program

All Kindergarten students are tested mid-year and are entered into the program in Spring if they qualify. First grade students new to the district may be assessed at parent or teacher request during the Fall. First graders who did not qualify for the program in Kindergarten are not retested due to state procedures for Gifted Education. Students in second grade and up may be assessed at parent or teacher request during the Fall.
