GIFTED EDUCATION MONTH IN KENTUCKY
February 2020 KAGE will again sponsor Gifted Education Month in Kentucky. Activities will include a Gifted Education Month Proclamation Signing in the Capitol in Frankfort on January.
The PROCLAMATION CEREMONY for Gifted Education Month will be held at the Capitol Rotunda on February 5, 2020 (time TBA). If possible, take advantage of being there and schedule a meeting with your legislators. It’s always a good thing when legislators and GT students interact! In January you can call their offices and arrange the meetings (502.564.8100).
January 27-31, 2020 is the Poster Campaign at the Capitol. Click HERE for more about this great opportunity to showcase your district.
Anytime is a great time to be a page for your legislator, but it would be particularly good to do on the proclamation signing day. Click HERE to read more about being a House or Senate page.

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.
