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.
