Texas Education Code 29.121 defines a gifted and talented student as “a child or youth who performs at or shows the potential of performing at a remarkably high level of accomplishment when compared to others of the same age, experience, or environment and who exhibits high performance capability in an intellectual, creative, or artistic area, possesses an unusual capacity for leadership, or excels in a specific academic field.” 


The North Lamar Independent School District recognizes that the abilities, needs and interests of students vary greatly.  To that end, we expect that students will benefit from differentiated instructional programs that develop and challenge their unique capabilities within a framework of instructional activities that fosters creativity and productivity.  Furthermore, students who are nominated and subsequently assessed, who then meet all state and district criteria for services in the gifted and talented program, will have the opportunity to work within the district’s specialized gifted and talented curriculum.


Students in grades Kindergarten through grade 12 will have an array of learning opportunities such as, but not limited to:

  • instructional and organizational patterns that enable students to work together as a group, to work with other students, and to work independently
  • a continuum of learning experiences that leads to the development of advanced-level products and performances
  • in-school, and when possible, out-of-school options relevant to the student’s area of strength that are available during the school year
  • opportunities to accelerate in areas of strength
