The open referral period for the Melissa Elementary Advanced Academics and Gifted/Talented program is Dec. 1-21, 2019.
The Gifted and Talented program at Melissa Schools is designed for students with remarkable intellectual, creative thinking, and/or leadership abilities. Anyone interested in referring an elementary student (Kindergarten – 5th grade) for testing should complete the online Referral Form for Elementary GT Services by Dec. 21, 2019.
If you are unsure whether or not your child could benefit from GT services, the district offers a list of qualities possessed by many GT children in elementary school. If the qualities apply to your child, they may benefit from GT services.
To access the Referral Form and review the list of qualities possessed by many GT children in elementary school, visit the Melissa ISD GT website at www.melissaisd.org/gt.
GT testing for students in grades 6-12 occurs in the fall between September and October; open referral testing occurs in the spring between March and April.
