On Monday, August 24, the Texas Association for the Gifted & Talented (TAGT) received a response to the request for guidance on servicing G/T students in remote learning environments from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) submitted on July 14, 2020. Included in the TEA response are answers to several Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs); read the full response here. Additionally, TEA has posted extended FAQs as part of the Strong Start 2020-2021 resources. Of note, TEA states that remote learning plans should include G/T students when planning for “students with additional learning needs,” that Texas Home Learning 3.0 will include G/T strategies and supports, and that LEAs must offer both in-person and virtual G/T identification sites with additional guidance regarding identification of students for G/T services forthcoming.
 
The TEA also includes notice that the Department of Special Populations will soon be releasing additional guidance. When available, these additional documents will be posted on the TEA COVID-19 Support site under Special Populations information and presented to superintendents during the weekly update call.

Additional Resources
TAGT will continue to provide resources, updates, and information as we receive them from TEA.
