School NewsGreg Higgins

North Lamar ISD is accepting nominations for the Gifted/Talented Program for school year 2015-2016.  The nomination period will continue through February 16, 2015.  Students in kindergarten through grade 11 are eligible.  Students currently participating in the program do not need to apply.

The selection process begins with the nomination of students by parents, community members, or the professional staff of the school district.  Nominated students will participate in the testing process to determine placement in the program.  Parent permission is required for the student to be evaluated for the program.

Parents or other community members who wish to nominate a student may obtain the nomination forms from the principal's office on each campus or the NLISD website.  Students in grades 6-11 may self-nominate.  Only those students nominated now will be included in the spring testing for placement in the program.  All nomination forms must be completed and returned to the principal's office by dismissal time on Monday, February 16, 2015.

An informational meeting is scheduled for 5:30 P.M., Tuesday, February 17th in the Bailey Intermediate School Cafeteria.  Specifics about the screening process as well as program organization will be explained in greater detail.

If you have questions about the nomination process or the Gifted/Talented program, please contact the building principal or Carolyn Patterson, NLISD GT Coordinator, Goodman Learning Center, 903-737-2003 x 5002 or cpatterson@northlamar.net
