SBISD has developed a three-level identification process to efficiently assess students’ needs for the special educational services provided in the Gifted and Talented Program. This three-level process is designed to be student-centered.

SBISD honors test scores for two years, beginning in 1st grade. Exceptions are made only for medical reasons documented by a physician.  Students may be referred each year, but the previous year’s test scores will be utilized.
