GT Update

During the summer of 2019 a new state plan for the education of gifted and talented students was approved. In collaboration with all stakeholders, we are currently in the process of updating Sinton ISD’s Gifted and Talented Handbook to communicate and reflect any changes.


SISD Gifted & Talented Program

Students who participate in services designed for gifted students will demonstrate skills in self-directed learning, thinking, research, and communication as evidenced by the development of innovative products and performances that are advanced in relation to students of similar age, experience, or environment and that reflect individuality and creativity. High school graduates who have participated in services for gifted students will produce products and performances of professional quality as part of their program services.
