Are you looking for ways to inform your administrator about the value of gifted education? NAGC has compiled an Administrator Toolbox that consists of concise videos, fact sheets, and supporting documents -- tools that YOU can use as the starting point to advocate and implement services for gifted students.
In October 2013, NCAGT with support from the National Association for Gifted Children hosted an Advocacy Conference. Materials from this conference can be accessed here.
Have You Brown Bagged Lately?
We are asking ALL NCAGT members to invite someone to coffee, tea, cookies, or lunch to have a conversation about one of the following:
- Funding for Governor's School
- The needs of gifted learners you know
- The needs of teachers of gifted learners
- NCAGT White Paper
- Successes of your District AIG Program
- Support for NC Gifted Programs
Invite a parent, teacher, principal, superintendent, school board member, legislator, county commissioner or other key individual to talk with you about the importance of developing the intellectual talent in North Carolina.
"Virtual brown bags" through e-mails will do, too! It's simple! It's fun! It's necessary! It's powerful!
For any support or to share successes, contact Linda Robinson.
