GIFTED AND TALENTED
In 1987, The Texas Legislature mandated that all school districts and charter schools must identify and serve Gifted and Talented (G/T) students at all grade levels, and in 1990, the Texas State Plan for the Education of Gifted/Talented Students (Revised 2009) was adopted by the Texas State Board of Education. To that extent, the Region 7 G/T staff is committed to assisting districts and charter schools in achieving the standards outlined for gifted education through comprehensive services including:

  • Offering professional development on best practices, developments, and achievements in G/T education
  • Developing materials and assisting districts in the development and implementation of local programsĀ 
  • Providing personalized technical assistanceĀ 
  • Delivering student seminars designed around the four foundation curricular areasĀ 
  • Assisting districts and charters in providing out-of-school options for gifted students through student seminars and summer scholarship opportunities

We invite you to learn more about our services and programs by browsing our G/T web pages. We look forward to serving you and your students!
