ECISD G/T Task Force
The ECISD G/T Task Force is a committee of district and campus staff, parents, and community members who unite to address the unique needs of gifted and talented students. We encourage and endorse policies that support the social, emotional, and intellectual needs of the gifted child.

Gifted students’ characteristics can be diverse. Below are six areas where we will find giftedness. Within specific academic ability, students may have one or two subjects that they are most passionate about.
- Creative Thinking - Leadership - General Intellectual Ability - Psychomotor - Specific Academic Ability - Visual/ Performing Arts
