HISD's Gifted and Talented department is offering virtual parent-information sessions on Gifted and Talented, often referred to as simply G/T, for parents who would like to learn more about HISD's G/T programs.
HISD provides two program options for Gifted and Talented (G/T) students Vanguard Magnet and Vanguard Neighborhood programs. The Vanguard Neighborhood programs are designed to meet the needs of G/T students at the school to which they are zoned, and the Vanguard Magnet program provides an environment where G/T students can work with their peers at a Vanguard Magnet School.
All HISD K-12 schools offer programs designed to meet the needs of G/T students. Both programs provide a differentiated curriculum by modifying the depth, complexity, and pacing of the general school program.
HISD's Gifted and Talented department is offering three parent-information sessions where they will present an overview of each program. Each session will offer the same content:
October 13, 2020 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. Microsoft Teams
November 9, 20205:30 – 6:30 p.m. Microsoft Teams (link to come)
December 9, 20205:30 – 6:30 p.m. Microsoft Teams (link to come)
At these sessions, G/T specialists will be on hand to answer all your questions, including:

What is Gifted and Talented?
Is my child Gifted and Talented?
What services does HISD offer for Gifted and Talented students?
How do I apply to an HISD Gifted and Talented program?
