New to SBISD
Summer testing is appropriate for students in the following situations:
- Student moved into SBISD after the GT referral deadline for the previous school year.
- Student is entering SBISD from a private school or home school.
- Student is transferring in from another public school district without a GT program.
For families meeting these criteria, a Summer Evaluation may be requested for students entering grades 1-11. Entering kindergarten students will go through the regularly scheduled GT evaluation process in the fall of their kindergarten year.
If your student qualifies based on the above criteria, please submit the GT Summer Evaluation Request below. You will be prompted to upload a completed Parent Referral Form as part of this request.
If your child was identified and participating in GT services in another public school district - and will now enroll in SBISD - you may apply to have their GT status transferred.
We require a copy of GT records (sometimes called a profile or matrix) and test scores from the previous district, along with a Parent Referral Form (found below). You may submit this paperwork to your school counselor or directly to our office: [email protected]
Please note that all districts use a different identification standard. If the SBISD Transfer Committee requires more information to make a decision, your child may be offered the opportunity to participate in GT Summer Evaluation.
The Parent Referral Form is required for both Summer Evaluation and GT Transfer requests. Teacher Observation is optional for both. Teachers may also submit a letter of recommendation to Advanced Academics in lieu of the Observation Inventory.
