Randolph Field ISD Gifted and Services Classroom Overview

The Randolph Field ISD Programs for Gifted and Talented (GT) students provide instructional opportunities and other services designed to meet the unique needs of students with significantly advanced general intellectual ability and/or specific subject matter aptitude in language arts, science, social studies and/or mathematics. These programs shall provide an appropriately differentiated curriculum and ensure the students are instructed in all essential elements and demonstrate an acceptable degree of mastery. As needed, the services will modify the delivery of instruction for students by accelerating and/or providing for greater depth, more complex content, and enrichment activities. GT classes and/or services are available in kindergarten-12th grades. Teachers serving identified GT students have met the state requirements necessary for assignment of gifted and talented students.
Teachers will refer students through Eduphoria Formspace

Randolph Field ISD Gifted and Services Remote Learning Overview (COVID-19 response)
 
If Randolph Field ISD will need to provide remote instruction,  we will offer ways to provide for the needs of our students. Students receiving instruction through online and virtual classrooms will be provided GT services. Services include enrichment activities and differentiated instruction through the core content. To further support our GT students and families, we designed a bi-annual newsletter to share various resources to not only meet their academic needs but social-emotional needs as well. We included interactive and hands-on learning opportunities for students through project-based learning ideas and STEM activities to continue engaging in the learning process at home.  (updated Fall 2022)
