Alvord ISD Gifted and Talented Services-G/T Coordinator Kaysi Hamilton

Alvord ISD meets the needs of our gifted population through the Alvord ISD Gifted and Talented Services referred to as BRIDGE in the AISD G/T Handbook.  BRIDGE is an acronym for Bulldogs Reaching Individual Destinations through Gifted Education.  G/T students are served through a variety of instructional options.  New G/T students to the district will be automatically accepted into services with records supporting that the student has previously qualified for G/T services in another school system.  Any student in AISD is eligible to be nominated for the G/T identification process.  G/T testing occurs in the fall and spring as well as kinder testing at midyear.  Important information on this webpage include:  nomination form, current AISD G/T Handbook, Community Awareness Slideshow, G/T Family Orientation Slideshow, Community Survey, G/T Handbook Receipt form, G/T supply list, Mrs. Hamilton's schedule.
