We need you to join our efforts in creating policy to hold schools accountable to meet the needs of gifted and talented children. Recent state legislative efforts include meeting the needs of underserved gifted children, an acceleration policy for all districts and requiring schools to report academic growth of gifted children. Much work has been done to leverage federal legislation of ESSA to maximize resources for gifted and talented children. We can do so much more with your help!
