Gifted and Talented (GATE) Program
Casey has a robust Gifted and Talented Program designed to challenge students that are identified as "Gifted and Talented". GT students are clustered in classrooms with GT certified teachers. Casey GT Students also meet with our campus GT advocate, Mr. John Garcia, Casey Librarian. In addition to the enriching lessons provided by the classroom teacher, Mr. Garcia meets with the Casey GT Cohort frequently throughout each semester for GT Chess Lunch Bunch and provides support for semester long "Passion Projects". Mr. Garcia is also planning several enrichment field trips and GATE Project Showcases for the GT Cohort. The Fall GT Project Showcase was a great success and he recently took 3rd - 5th grade GT students and their parents to the Austin Opera dress rehearsal of "Ariadne auf Naxos" at the Long Center.
