  • Irving ISD Learns at Home Online GT and Advanced Academics Resources

    Greetings! 

    Our department hopes that this information finds you all safe at home and doing well. We have had a few questions regarding resources for gifted students during their time at home. As we transition into learning from home, the most important thing your kids can be doing is reading at home, playing outside  when possible, and taking the additional time to explore passions and interests. We want to ensure that our learners are most important feeling safe and secure during an uncertain time.

    Please feel free to use any of these resources if your student is needing some additional stimulation and inspiration. We will continue to update this as we vet resources for you all. We even have a resource for parents.
