Gifted Education Month

GIFTED EDUCATION MONTH IN KENTUCKY 2017

In February 2017 KAGE will sponsor Gifted Education Month in Kentucky.  Activities include a Gifted Education Month Proclamation Signing in the Capitol in Frankfort on February 8, and a SEE, UNDERSTAND, and ADVOCATE FOR US poster campaign.

• The PROCLAMATION CEREMONY for Gifted Education Month, (February 2017) will be held at the Capitol Rotunda on Wednesday, February 8, 2017 at noon Eastern time.  Click HERE to get information about attending the Proclamation Ceremony and other activities your students can do that day.  

• Anytime is a great time to be a page for your legislator, but it would be particularly good to do this on Wednesday, February 8, 2017 for the Proclamation Signing day.  Click HERE to read more about being a House or Senate page.

• Looking for ways to celebrate gifted education month in your school or district?  Click HERE for some suggested activities put together by KAGE board members.  Please share with KAGE your ideas and activities taking place in your area.  

Educating parents and district and community leaders on the importance of appropriate educational opportunities for gifted students is particularly critical.  Invite parents and community and school leaders into a G/T classroom during this week.  Ask them to participate in challenging activities along with gifted students!  Possibilities for showcasing gifted students and gifted education are limitless.

Gifted Education Month in Kentucky is a good time to open positive dialogues with key decision makers, parents, local officials, and community members.
