CAGT Statement on Systemic Racism

CAGT is excited to announce our new
FaceBook Live – Conversations with CAGT

Each Tuesday at 5:00 pm MDT, we will live stream a 20 – 30 minute presentation, followed by a Q&A with a local or national expert on a topic current and relevant to our GT community. Please join us for these informational conversations!

This past Tuesday our Conversations with CAGT  was with one of our wonderful conference Keynote speakers, Dr. Susan Baum. Susan presented: When the IEP is Not Enough: The Suite of Tools Approach to Strength Based, Talent-focused Education. She spoke with us about how twice exceptional learners have a dual set of needs that separates them from other students with IEPs who do not have advanced abilities, interests, or talents. That unfortunately, the IEP is designed to address weaknesses with no consideration of how these students’ advanced abilities complicate the situation. She shared the Suite of Tools and how to plan with students’ strengths, interests, and talents in mind. If you missed this presentation or any of our “conversations” you can find them on our Resource page, CAGT’s FaceBook page or on our YouTube channel. Enjoy!

Our next “conversation” will be December 8th with another one of our favorite conference Keynotes, Joy Lawson Davis.  Join us Tuesday for our next FB Live at 5:00!

Normal operations are still in place except for any in person activities. Plans for our fall conference have begun and we are following all legislative issues that may impact our GT students. We remain committed to supporting our community of gifted learners through this challenging time and to help families who must remain home throughout the rest of the school year. Below are some links from our national organization and other expert sources on how to support your gifted children’s needs at home.
