    The Donna Independent School District provides guidance and direction to K-12 Advanced Academic Programs, Gifted/Talented for elementary schools and Pre-AP/AP for secondary schools. Students are identified on a yearly basis as specified in the Texas State Plan for the Education of Gifted/Talented Students (http://www.tea.state.tx.us). These students are then provided with differentiated instruction. This department provides those professionals serving GT identified students with the certification requirements that are specified in the Texas State Plan for the Gifted. At the Secondary level our identified Gifted/Talented students take Pre-AP/AP courses. Identified Gifted/Talented students participate in various extra-curricular activities such as: UIL, Spelling Bee, Battle of the Books.
