Lindale Gifted & Talented Association (LGTA) is our organization for parents. It helps organize various types of support for our GT program and teachers as well as for our GT students.
The goals for the LISD Gifted and Talented Program enable students to become individuals whose education allows them opportunities to grow in their areas of giftedness. With this in mind the following has been adopted:
Gifted and Talented students will engage in self-directed learning and independent research at an advance and complex level as a precursor to continuing self-motivation, exploration and discovery, and lifelong learning.
Gifted and Talented students will develop advanced critical/creative thinking skills and will apply them in problem solving tasks and increasingly advanced intellectual products.
Gifted and Talented students will experience topics in greater depth and complexity and will integrate concepts across content areas through independent projects, studies, and research.
Gifted and Talented students will demonstrate effective communication styles through presentation skills that utilize technology
