Students New to TISD

ATTENTION NEW TISD STUDENTS!!
 
Tomball ISD offers a transfer process to students who are coming to us from Gifted & Talented programs in other districts.  If your student was enrolled in GT services in their previous district, you will need to submit official documentation of ability and achievement test scores for our review.  Since school districts have different qualifications for GT services, not all students who seek the GT transfer will qualify. To make testing requests, please email  tammylafountain@tomballisd.net ASAP - the deadline is September 15, 2017. 
 
NOTE:  This does not apply to Kindergarten GT Screening.  There is no need to request Kindergarten screening since all Kindergarten students are automatically screened in the fall.

 

All Kindergarten students will be screened for Gifted & Talented services throughout the fall semester.  Kindergarten screening is not based on requests or nomination, and there is no action required on the part of parents.  Students will be evaluated for problem-solving skills, logical reasoning, and cognitive maturity. 

 

If your Kindergarten student meets the minimum criteria for the screening tasks, you will be notified in writing (by mid-January) that further testing is in order.  At that point, you will receive required forms to complete and return, in order to continue with the testing process.

GT Showcase

Just a reminder - Our TISD GT Showcase is tonight at Creekview Elementary. You can arrive between 5:45 and 6:15 to set up in your designated area - someone will tell you where to go. The Showcase begins at 6:30 and ends at 7:30. MapQuest did not work with the address so I used Google Maps and the address came up as 8877 New Harmony Trail. See you tonight! I am so excited for the kids to show off all of their hard work!
