White Paper Endorsements

KENTUCKY’S FUTURE:

MINING UNTAPPED TREASURE CHILDREN AND YOUTH OF THE COMMONWEALTH WHO ARE GIFTED AND TALENTED

KENTUCKY ASSOCIATION OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PRINCIPALS: 
“KAESP believes that students who are gifted and talented have unique learning needs that must be addressed. Increased funding is needed to provide professional development for all teachers, appropriate services, and comprehensive identification processes that are also sensitive to identification of gifted students with disabilities, economically disadvantaged, ethnically diverse, or are learners of the English language. The association believes that funding for Gifted and Talented Education must remain separate categorical funding. We voice our support of the white paper, Kentucky’s Future: Mining Untapped Treasure — Children and Youth of the Commonwealth Who Are Gifted and Talented.”
