New to Midland?

    • If you are moving from a state or country that your child did not have the opportunity to qualify in, we will contact the previous district to verify that information. If you are moving from a private school, the state policy for your state will be used to determine eligibility for testing. Texas requires GT screening opportunities to begin in kindergarten for public schools. 

    • If you are transferring from a Texas school and your child is not a GT transfer, you will need to nominate your child during the general nomination period. Students who enroll in a Midland ISD campus from another school district in 2022 - 2023 and who are not G/T Transfers will need to submit an application in the Apply Midland process when the GT application window is announced and opened by the District (October 1 - 31).  Watch for announcements through the District.
