Grapevine-Colleyville ISD administers the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) to students district-wide in grades 2, and 5. Scores from the CogAT are included as one of several possible measures used to identify students for the gifted and talented program.
Our students will be participating in this assessment on October 13-23, 2020. 

the TEST

Students in grades 3-5 will be participating in the STAAR tests on the following dates. Please mark your calendars now and try to avoid scheduling any appointments or absences for your child on these days. CES will be a "CLOSED CAMPUS" on STAAR testing days in order to protect the integrity of the test. This means we will not be allowed to have any visitors or volunteers on campus.

Thank you for understanding.
