  • Testing will take place between October 1 and December 31.  The specific date will be determined by the campus.

  • Once your child has completed testing, the test results will be mailed home to the parents.

Transfer/New Students:

If your student has been previously identified as gifted and talented at their prior public school district, he/she is eligible to receive services in Garrison ISD if placement can be verified.

  • To verify placement, please contact Mrs. Pinckard, the Gifted and Talented Program Coordinator.

  • Mrs. Pinckard will contact the previous school district to request the appropriate records, data, and any other information relative to gifted and talented services.

  • The committee will review the information to determine placement in the Gifted and Talented Program.

  • If the student is eligible for gifted and talented services through Garrison ISD, the parents will be asked to complete a Parent Permission for Services form. 

  • Once permission is granted, your student will begin receiving services.

  • GISD does not accept private school or counselor/physician evaluations
