Mexia Independent School District is in the process of accepting nominations for
students who would benefit from the special instructional techniques provided by
its Gifted and Talented program. Student nominations from parents, teachers and
community members will be accepted from January 19 through January 27. If you
know of a student in grades K through 12 who you believe “performs at or shows
the potential for performing at a remarkably high level of accomplishment
academically,” you are encouraged to nominate that student to be assessed for
possible placement in the Gifted and Talented program. The student nomination form
may be obtained from the school counselor. If nominating a student, the form must be
completed and returned to the campus counselor no later than January 27. Forms will not be
accepted after January 27.
For nominated students who have parental approval, testing will
occur during the semester. Qualifying students in Kindergarten will be placed in
the program by March 1. Students who qualify in grades 1-11 will be placed in the
program during the next school year.
