Gifted and Talented Parent Advisory Committee
What is the purpose of the Gifted and Talented Parent Advisory Committee (GT PAC)?
The GT PAC members serve as liaisons between the GT PAC and their school community. Parent representatives are invited to attend monthly GT PAC meetings and share Gifted and Talented program news with their school communities. Parent representatives are encouraged to provide feedback to the committee from their school communities.
Who is on the GT PAC?
The Gifted and Talented Parent Advisory Committee is comprised of parents in Fort Bend ISD who support the GT program offered by Fort Bend ISD. Ideally, the GT PAC should have at least one parent representative from each FBISD campus. This committed group of parents collaborate with the Fort Bend ISD Gifted and Talented Department, school administrators, and GT teachers to receive updates, ask questions, and provide feedback related to Gifted and Talented programming. A list of parent representatives and the schools they represent is located in the Reference Documents section of this page to the right.
How may I volunteer to represent my child(ren)'s school?
Parents may self-nominate to serve on the GT Parent Advisory Committee (GT PAC) by completing an online application. Each campus may have a maximum of three parent representatives on the committee. If more than three parents submit applications, representatives will be selected via a lottery. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions or trouble completing the online application.
How may I ask questions or submit concerns to the GT PAC?
Questions and concerns from the campus GT community will need to be e-mailed to the campus COGS (Champions of Gifted Services) at least three (3) days prior to the next scheduled meeting so the campus COGS may submit it to the parent representative. Please go to the Campus COGS Search to locate the name and e-mail address of your campus COGS.
