Gifted & Talented Referral Window Opens August 21, 2019

Bryan ISD is now accepting referrals for students who may qualify for Gifted & Talented Services.  The GT program is designed for students who are performing well above grade level or demonstrating exceptional academic strengths or talents. Anyone wishing to refer a student in Bryan ISD can pick up a referral form in any BISD campus office or get it electronically by scanning the QR codes or clicking on the links below. The referral form must be returned to the campus no later than September 27, 2019. 

Per the 2019 Texas State Gifted and Talented Plan, after an initial evaluation is completed, students may only be reevaluated once in elementary, middle and high school.
