Gifted & Talented


The San Benito Consolidated Independent School District is dedicated to providing a quality

education for all students and recognizes that they are unique in their needs, interests, and

abilities. By the nature of their exceptional abilities, gifted students need a differentiated

educational program that provides learning activities commensurate with their abilities.

Gifted education in the San Benito Consolidated Independent School District has the

responsibility to enrich and enhance the total educational program so that all students can be

effectively educated. It encourages students to assume greater responsibility for recognizing

and fulfilling their own affective and cognitive potential. Gifted education fosters intellectual

ability, task commitment, creativity, and critical thinking.

The State Plan provides requirements for and guidance to districts as they meet the unique needs of the gifted/talented population in Texas.  The Texas State Plan for the Education of Gifted/Talented Students (State Plan) - revised 2019
