Dear Parents and Guardians,

Our school is pleased to announce that nominations for gifted and talented (GT) students are being accepted until September 25th. Please visit our Kealing GT website for more information.

You can learn more about nomination process on the Kealing GT website. Interested parents and guardians may also contact Jenna Martin, at for additional information. Please note the following before contacting Ms. Martin:

  • If your student was tested for GT at another AISD campus AND was identified, you DO NOT need to have your child tested again. The records accompany your child during his/her/their AISD career.

  • If your student was tested for GT on a campus outside of Austin Independent School District AND was identified GT, you need to email that campus to get your student's GT records transferred to Linda Rivera at

  • Being identified as GT is NOT part of the LASA application requirement or process. However, being identified as GT, does ensure proper placement in advanced courses as your student matriculates to high school at an AISD campus.

In order to nominate your child, please fill out this NOMINATION FORM.

GT screening and testing requires parent/guardian permission by the campus deadline, September 25th. A variety of

measures are used for screening and testing including assessments for bilingual students.
