    Gifted and Talented Teachers


    In accordance with Texas Education Agency Guidelines teachers who have students identified as Gifted and Talented must complete a 30-hour training session. Only those courses listed as "GT Foundations" Parts 1-6 will be allowed for the initial training. Teachers who have completed their 30-hour training are required to complete 6 hours of updates each year. Preference is given to the official Pick 6 courses provided by Region 10. All other courses must be approved in advance. 

    Teachers who are assigned students after the school year begins have one (1) semester to complete the required 30-hour training. All hours must be added to Eduphoria Workshop for credit to be given.
