Registration is open for two opportunities to join a presentation on a forthcoming Gifted and Talented Report in Massachusetts on May 8, 2019.
Massachusetts has very few Academically Advanced (often known as Gifted & Talented) education programs available in public schools. Organizations such as the Massachusetts Association for Gifted Education have been calling for more opportunities for students who are academically advanced to have access to more challenging coursework opportunities.
The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is inviting members of the public to join the researcher of the preliminary study on policy and practices of academically advanced education at one of two in-person meetings. There will be an opportunity for questions and stakeholder input.
The two presentations will be identical. Register in advance here.
