CLAYTON GIFTED AND TALENTED PROGRAM
There is new terminology in the AISD Gifted and Talented program. GT STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) is for students identified as gifted in math and/or science and GT Humanities is for students identified as gifted in language arts and/or social studies.
More information about the AISD gifted program is available from the Department of Advanced Academic Services website. This site can be found at: https://www.austinisd.org/advanced-academics/study
Each classroom teacher provides activities targeted to gifted and talented students, but the enrichment activities are available to high-ability students and others who want the challenge.
Nominations and screening run twice a year. 3rd – 5th graders can be nominated and screened during the fall semester. Kindergarten – 2nd grade students can be nominated and screened during the spring semester. There is a two-week window for nominations each semester. All information will be communicated through the Clayton Weekly, so if you aren’t already signed up for our Googlegroup blast, be sure to do so.
Thank you for your interest and support of the Gifted and Talented program at Clayton Elementary School.
