Gifted and Talented

 Home                                 Equality in GIfted/Talented (G/T) Education

    
 

A gifted/talented student is a child or youth who performs at or shows the potential for performing at a remarkably high level of accomplishment when compared to others of the same age, experience, or environment and who:

* exhibits high performance capability in an intellectual, creative, or artistic area;
* possesses an unusual capacity for leadership; or
* excels in a specific academic field. (Texas Education Code §29.121)

 

The state’s goal for G/T students is to ensure that those students who participate in G/T services demonstrate skills in self-directed learning, thinking, research, and communication.  G/T students develop innovative products and sophisticated performances that reflect individuality and creativity and are targeted to an audience outside the classroom.
