Gifted and Talented

Hello, Parents! I am excited to be serving this year as the district GT coordinator. I believe that parents are partners when it comes to meeting the needs of gifted learners. Parents and teachers can work together to ensure children are not only challenged, but also valued for their unique abilities.

Students that qualify for the Gifted & Talented program will receive the following services at Odem-Edroy ISD:

· Elementary/Intermediate: GT pullout program daily for 30 minutes

· Jr. High: GT pullout out program weekly

· High School: Pre-AP/AP programs

The elementary and intermediate campuses provide differentiated instruction through grouping, advanced learning opportunities, and after school programs (UIL & the chess club). The junior high and high school provide enrichment classes including pre-Ap, AP, dual credit & CTE classes.

If you have any questions regarding the GT program, I can be reached at Odem Intermediate School at 361-368-3881, ext. 268.

Yours in Education,

Jana Kieschnick
