Gifted & Talented



Students who participate in services designed for gifted students will demonstrate skills in self-directed learning, thinking, research, and communication as evidenced by the development of innovative products and performances that reflect individuality and creativity and are advanced in relation to students of similar age, experience, or environment. High school graduates who have participated in services for gifted students will have produced products and performances of professional quality as part of their program services.By focusing on the goal of this plan - that gifted students develop "innovative products and performances that are advanced in relation to students of similar age, experience, or environment" - we can assure that Texas meets the future with confidence that all its students have been challenged to work at the highest levels. Through the combined efforts of the Texas Education Agency, the regional education service centers, local district personnel, and the communities they serve, all children will have an education that provides challenging academic opportunities that enable them to reach their full potential.
