Benavides ISD is now accepting referrals for students who may need Gifted/Talented Services for the school year. This program is designed for students who exhibit intellectual and creative thinking abilities at an extraordinary level not normally served in the regular classroom. Services are provided only upon identification of education needs of the student. Parents, teachers, or other members of the community may nominate students for this program. Anyone wishing to refer a student attending Benavides ISD in kindergarten through 12th grade this school year is asked to go by the student’s campus office and request a copy of the referral form. Those unable to go by the school should call their child’s campus counselor. It must be returned to the school counselor by November 3, 2017.
