MIDLAND, Texas (KOSA) - MISD has made it easier for parents to nominate their students for enrollment in Carver Center, or inclusion in secondary programs for students that have been identified as gifted and talented (G/T).

This year, applications can be submitted for students for all grades during the month of October.

Applications are accepted from all public, private, charter, and home school students that live in the MISD attendance zone. Applications can be completed and submitted via Apply Midland by visiting midlandisd.net/apply.

“This new format simplifies the application and nomination process for all families, particularly those with students in more than one grade,” said Director of Advanced Academic Services Judy Bridges. “Once the students are tested, those who have applied and are identified for G/T will be contacted for next steps.”

Every nominated student will be screened for inclusion in G/T programming.

Please note that the application window will close Oct. 31.

Midland ISD is hosting information sessions for parents to learn more about the nomination process. Each session begins at 5:30 p.m. on the following dates and locations:
