Family & Community

Family & Community

The district involves family and community members in services designed for gifted/talented students throughout the school year.

Parent meetings and learning opportunities will be provided by both the campus and the district.  Campus opportunities should focus on the identification process and services provided, as well as specific needs of the campus.  District opportunities will include a variety of topics, including social & emotional needs of gifted learners, TAGT scholarships, and Duke TIP.  

At the end of each school year, parents will be asked to complete an online survey that will be used to improve GATES in NISD.
