The Texarkana Arkansas School District is excited to announce that we are currently accepting referrals for students in grades 2-11 who would like to be evaluated for possible placement in the gifted and talented program. (If you currently have a student in the GT program, this does not apply to you.) A parent wishing to refer a student for the 2023-2024 school year should contact their child's teacher and/or counselor prior to completing the GT Referral form to review the student's past grades, test scores, and classroom performance to determine advisability of testing. Referred students will be tested on campus in March. ALL referrals for evaluation must be completed by Tuesday, February 28, 2023.
