The gifted and talented (GT) program of Canadian Independent School District is dedicated to providing the most appropriate educational services for gifted and talented students in grades K-12


Elementary GT students in grades K-5 are served through differentiation of classroom instruction.  Secondary GT students in grades 6-12 are served through dual credit and Advanced Placement courses as well as classroom differentiation.


Canadian ISD identifies students as gifted and talented through the following process:

  1. An adult or student may nominate students. 

  2. Nominated students will be evaluated using a variety of information and testing procedures.

  3. Campus GT committees will meet to evaluate the student’s matrix following district guidelines. The committee may recommend further screening with parental permission.

  4. Parents will be notified concerning placement or non-placement.
