Gifted and Talented Selection Process


Posted Date: 01/30/2020

If you are interested in the possibility of having your child enrolled in S.I.T.E., our district Gifted & Talented program, we will be having an informational meeting Thursday January 23rd from 4:30-5:30pm at Kountze Elementary School cafeteria.  

The meeting will provide information about gifted children and should give you a better understanding about what gifted education is all about.  We will also provide you with information about our local programs and the screening process that we use to determine program eligibility.  At the conclusion of our meeting, you will have the opportunity to nominate your student for testing and possible entry into our program. Please visit our district website for helpful informational regarding the Gifted and Talented child.  You can find the link under the tab “Central Office” at www.kountzeisd.org.
