      Underrepresentation of students who are Black, Latinx, American Indian/Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, learning the English language, and who come from low-income families is a pervasive and longstanding problem in gifted education. In the Access Denied/System Failure report, access to, equity in, and missingness from gifted education is examined nationally, by state, locale, and school Title I status, with report cards for each state. Then solutions are explored to address inequities

  • Gifted Coordinator FlipPD -- Supporting Gifted Coordinators: Opportunities for Collaboration and Reflection -- a 3 sessions workshop for both novice and experienced coordinators. Gifted coordinators’ roles and experiences vary widely, as do their expectations, direction and administrative support. Regardless of the coordinator’s roles and location, several prevailing priorities exist: identifying students with high potential; increasing diversity; developing appropriate services, curriculum, and teacher support; and structuring sustainable gifted services.  Each of the three webinars in this “Flipped” series will be led by experienced coordinators who have successfully maneuvered through these responsibilities. Attendees will have several presentations from the NAGC 67th Annual Convention Reimagined! to watch prior to each session.
