BRIDGES FOR PARTNERS:
ADVOCATING FOR GIFTED EDUCATION
IN YOUR LOCAL SCHOOL
The State of Michigan does not require any public school to identify or serve gifted students. What you get at a school depends on what the administration at the school has decided to offer, not what the state mandates and funds - because it doesn’t. Additionally, what your school offers in terms of gifted education may or may not be what is considered best practice. How do you know? What is appropriate, equitable, efficient, and challenging gifted education?
Members of the PLUS board of directors, with over fifty years of combined experienced as gifted educators, administrators, parents, and advocates, will discuss what research tells us about what works and what doesn’t, how to evaluate the gifted services your child is receiving, and how to ask for what your child needs in the classroom. Plenty of time for discussion and questions will be available. This will be an open forum for parents to have their voices heard.
This FREE presentation is open to the public.
