    May 2020 GT Screening 

    Below is the an update on the May 2020 Gifted and Talented Screening process that was delayed due to the COVID closure.  This screening is only available to those who were referred during the May 2020 Screening window and students moving into Aledo I.S.D. who were identified as gifted by their previous school district.   

    Orange and Black Bearcat Learners:  The screening will be completed during the first nine weeks and will take place on your home campus. 

    Remote Bearcat Learners:  We are diligently working on a plan that will allow us to proceed with the 2020 Spring GT screening in a timely, equitable, and safe manner for remote learners. The process may look different than procedures we have used in the past, but the safety of our students is our #1 concern.   Specific details will be emailed to you by August 26, 2020.
