Welcome

  • The Special Populations Department includes many different groups of students at GISD including:
     
    Gifted/Talented
    Gonzales ISD has a gifted/talented program for students in grades K-12 who are identified as having outstanding potential abilities in general intellectual areas. This program stresses critical and creative thinking, problem solving, self-directed research and independent study, and the creation of innovative products. In the elementary schools, students are served through a pull-out program in which the students have the opportunity to work with gifted and talented students in their grade level. In the secondary schools, students are clustered within the honors/advanced core curriculum classes. Therefore, the program is designed for those who are very capable and can master skills quickly.
    Please contact Amanda Fullilove for more information, amanda.fullilove@gonzalesisd.net.

    Dyslexia
    The purpose of this program is to offer an individual intensive multi-sensory program for those identified students exhibiting characteristics associated with dyslexia.  This program's goal is to teach those students strategies and the rules of the English language to help accelerate the reading, writing, and spelling skills used in the regular classroom and in everyday life. 
    Please contact Erin Lindemann-LaBuhn for more information, erin.labuhn@gonzalesisd.net.

    Bilingual/ESL/LEP
