Katy ISD students in grades 1 - 4 and 6 - 11 can be screened for the 2017 - 2018 gifted and talented program if parents submit a Parent Checklist by the deadline.
Beginning in November, Katy ISD students in grades 1-4 and 6-11 can be referred for screening for the 2017-2018 gifted and talented program. Parents must complete a Parent Checklist which can be obtained from the student’s school or from the Katy ISD website.

The deadline for completing and returning the Parent Checklist is December 6, 2017. Checklists which are not returned by the deadline will not be screened for service for the 2017-2018 school year. The State of Texas requires that various types of measures be used to identify students for gifted programs which includes observations and standardized tests. The program for elementary students consists of a one-day pullout in the Challenge classroom with a teacher trained in gifted education.
Transfer students who were screened in Fall 2017 must wait one full academic year before they can be re-screened.
Parents may contact campus counselors, elementary Challenge teachers, or G/T facilitators if they have additional questions. They can visit the Katy ISD GT and Advanced Academics webpage for more information.
