The Kentucky Advisory Council for Gifted and Talented Education and Kentucky Department of Education in 2010 compiled a handbook of articles and other resources of interest to educators and families of gifted children. The handbook is intended to aid in the implementation of gifted and talented services that districts provide to Kentucky’s gifted students.
GIFTED EDUCATION WEEK IN KENTUCKY is usually designated in February, but NOW is always a good time to open positive dialogues with key decision makers, parents, local officials, and community members. To download a list of activities YOU can do in your community to increase awareness of gifted education, click here.
KAGE has set up a LISTSERV with news about legislative action conferences workshops, and other noteworthy events. You will only be able to receive messages – this is not a discussion/bulletin board.
To subscribe to the KAGE LISTSERV, click here, Go to the section titled SUBSCRIBING TO KAGE-L. If you have any questions about the KAGE LISTSERV, you may call the KAGE office at 270-745-7301, or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
