Gifted And Talented District Testing Dates for Grades 1-11 (November, 2005)
*** Changes to District Testing *****

Frisco ISD will be accepting nominations for the Gifted and Talented Program (QUEST) beginning December 5, 2005, and ending December 16, 2005. Students currently enrolled in Frisco ISD in grades 1-11 may be nominated by parents, teachers, counselors, administrators, or other community members for formal testing. Phase I testing will be held on Saturday, January 21, 2006, at Bright Elementary. Students in first (1st) and fifth (5th) grades will not need to take this test because they will have already taken the CogAT test in their classrooms this year. We will be able to use those scores as they become available. Students may be nominated each year. However, testing data is considered valid for two (2) years, so some may not require additional testing at this time.

If you would like to refer your child for the January testing/assessment, please contact the Gifted and Talented facilitator on your child’s campus to request a referral packet after December 4th. Their names and corresponding campuses are listed below, and you may call the front office at your child’s campus to leave a voice mail request.

The completed referral packet must be received no later than 3:00 p.m. on Friday, December 16, 2005.

This upcoming testing period will replace the summer testing. Therefore, district-wide testing will not occur again until January, 2007. Please note that we will continue to monitor student performance on district testing on the CogAT and ITBS tests to look for potential candidates during the school year. The Gifted/Talented facilitators are available at each campus to answer questions and to help you get a nomination packet.
