|Good News from Colorado!
The signing event for our HB 1021 Early Access Bill was signed along with the Governor's Education Initiative Legislation SB 212 Colorado Achievement Plan for Kids (CAP4K), the School Finance Act with an ADDITIONAL $200,000 for gifted education, and other education-related measures. The governor's initiative is a push to getting at-risk 3 and 4 year olds into preschool, increasing the slots for full-time kindergarten and significant funding for capital construction for schools and alternative teacher compensation plans.

CAGT Presidents Summer Message
May 31, 2008
I am sitting at my lap-top; behind me are stacks of boxes, holding hundreds of books, dozens of teachers guides, math manipulatives, and a large variety of other tools of teaching. Through the last weeks, I have said goodbye to some old students, met with new students and their parents, started the process of packing my classroom for a move, prepared report cards, collated student data, and consoled young students moving on to a higher grade.
You may ask, What does this have to do with an active and productive state organization for gifted students? I would reply, A great deal.
