Nominations sought for gifted, talented

Nominations will be accepcted beginning next month for Ennis Independent School District’s Gifted and Talented Program for the 2009-2010 school year.
According to district officials, the Gifted and Talented Program is committed to meeting the needs of students who demonstrate above average potential or achievement.
Any student is eligible to be nominated by a teacher, parent or community member. This process includes multiple and specific criteria as required by the Texas Education Agency.
All nominated students are screened, the scores are tallied on a matrix and the top percentages required by the state – being 5 percent – are identified.
Nomination forms will be available Monday, Jan. 5, at all EISD campuses. Forms can be obtained in the counselor’s offices at all schools. The nomination forms should be returned to the school office or to Brian Fry, Ennis Independent School District, P.O. Box 1420, Ennis, Texas 75120.
Kindergarten nominations are due by Friday, Jan. 16. All other grades are due by Friday, Jan. 30.
Parents of kindergarten students who qualify for the program will be notified by mail in the spring. Parents of those students qualifying for the program in grades one through 11 will be notified by mail during the summer of 2009 (after TAKS scores are received by the district). If your child is currently in the GATE program, they do not need to be re-nominated.
If you should have any questions or would like more information on the GATE program, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher, the building principal or counselor, or Brian Fry, Curriculum Director at the Ennis Independent School District Administration Office at 972-875-9027.
