GT Status Transfers

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. You may submit this paperwork to your school counselor or directly to our office: 

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 for additional testing.

2021 GT Summer Evaluation

Registration for summer testing for 2022  will open in late March and will close July 15th.  Testing dates are in late July.  Please review the criteria below and then register here.  This link is not availale until late March.  


Summer testing is appropriate for students in the following situations:

  1. Student moved into SBISD after the GT referral deadline for the previous school year.
  2. Student is entering SBISD from a private school or home school.
  3. 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.

Please note that summer testing will take the place of an evaluation during the regular school year.  Students are only evaluated once every 12 months.
