Gifted and Talented





Nominations will be accepted beginning next month for Onalaska Independent School District’s Gifted and Talented Program for the 2019-20 school year.

The Onalaska Gifted and Talented Program is committed to meeting the needs of students who demonstrate above average potential or achievement.

Students at Onalaska ISD may be nominated for the Gifted and Talented program during the district nomination phase by teachers, counselors, parents, or self-nomination for students (Grades 6th-12th). This process includes multiple and specific criteria as required by the Texas Education Agency.


The nomination window is February 1-March 1, 2019.


Nomination forms will be available at each OISD campus or online by clicking here.

The nomination forms should be returned to the school counselor’s office.

Kindergarten nominations are due by Friday, February 8, 2019. All other grades are due by Friday, March 1, 2019.

Parents of kindergarten students who qualify for the program will be notified by March 1, 2019. Parents of those students qualifying for the program in first through twelfth grades will be notified by April 1, 2019.  If your child is currently in the Onalaska Gifted and Talented Program, they do not need to be re-nominated.
