GT Transfer Form

The Campus GT Committee will review your student’s GT records from your previous district to determine his/her educational need for services. Please know that districts identify and service gifted learners in different ways. If the data from a previous district does not support the educational need for GT services in Northwest ISD, we will test your student during the next screening window.
