Gifted and Talented Referral Process

Any student in grades K-12 may be referred for assessment in order to receive services in the Castleberry ISD  Gifted and Talented Program.  Referrals may come from parents, teachers, administrators, counselors, or other interested persons.  The person referring a student must complete a Gifted and Talented Referral  Form in order for a student to be considered for the program services.

For students in Kindergarten, they will be referred and if gifted and talented services are considered appropriate, placed in the Gifted and Talented program during the Spring semester, no later than March 1.
