Gifted & Talented Application Process

Interested families should complete the online application by the due date. Testing data can follow after the deadline, but should be submitted within one month of the deadline if possible. Please alert the GT Department if testing results will not be available within one month. Teacher recommendations for students currently in Bloomington Public Schools (BPS) will be handled internally by the GT staff.
