GT Students Showcase
Forty-five CISD Gifted and Talented Students from each of the three campuses were able to showcase their project in an Open House this week.
Students were given the opportunity to select a project idea , do research, build a presentation. Fourteen elementary students, fifteen junior high students, and sixteen high school students participated in the event. The showcase was open to the public who learned more information about the project selected by each student. The CISD Gifted and Talented Program begins in the first grade and extends to the twelfth grade.
GT Coordinator Jenae Ashbrook is accompanied by teachers on each campus to make this program the success it is. Jill Frauston is the elementary GT teacher, Tiffany Campbell and Carrie Moss are the junior high teachers, and Tashia Duncan is the high school teacher.
