GT Kids Conference

Attention GT students and parents! Our annual GT Kids Conference has gone virtual.  This two week challenge will go from October 26-November 6.  GT students will learn by manipulating, creating and pondering in a series of VIRTUAL labs/modules inspired by one of our most ancient technologies: PAPER!  November 7 is the Live Grand Finale via Zoom!  Register now at www.numindsenrichment.com/tomballgtkids/ to secure your spot!  The cost is $25 per student.  Please email Tori Cates, OIS GT Specialist, if you have any questions.

In light of the changes in our district with on campus instruction, TVS and those who may choose to homeschool, we want to provide this information in regards to GT qualifications.
 
A student who has qualifying scores according to TISD protocols and has been receiving GT services in TISD will once again receive GT services upon returning to the district.  No further evaluation is needed.  A student coming from a different district might need re-evaluation or testing according to whether or not current scores meet TISD protocols.  Please note that protocols are re-evaluated each year to be current with the Texas State Plan for Gifted and could change over time.
