    IDENTIFICATION CALENDAR FOR SCHOLARS IN PROGRESS PROGRAM
    Annual Application for the Elementary G/T Program
    The ECISD G/T program holds annual application periods. The kindergarten application process takes place in the fall for services beginning March 1st. Students in grades one through five may apply during the month of September for services beginning the following fall. Students may be nominated by teachers, parents, peers or themselves, but each student who applies must present a form with a parent signature granting permission to participate in the program.


    Identification Criteria
    G/T identification is based on scores from the Naglieri Nonverbal Assessment, the CogAT, and achievement test, report card grades, student portfolios and teacher observations of gifted characteristics.

    Further screening may include student interviews, outside portfolio work, parent appeal or written activities.
