Gifted & Talented Education

Bryan ISD’s Programs are:

  • Accessible – Advanced Academic programs are available to all student populations in the district through the consistent implementation of nomination, screening, and identification procedures that equitably represent all demographics.

  • Innovative – The programs are designed on the understanding that the regular curriculum will not fully meet the unique needs of advanced and gifted students. So a differentiated curriculum exists to meet those needs. Programs use research-based, best practices from the field of gifted education to meet the needs of gifted students.

  • Diverse – Provides an array of appropriately challenging learning experiences that emphasize content from all academic areas. Offers a variety of learning experiences that lead to the development of advanced-level products and performances. Allows opportunities throughout the school day for gifted students to work in both like-minded and varied groups, as well as independently.

  • Responsive – Meets the social and emotional needs of the gifted learner and ensures teachers of gifted students acquire the appropriate professional development needed to meet the needs of their students. The district also conducts an ongoing program evaluation at campus and district levels.
