CAGT Statements

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!

Tuesday, June 8th was our last CWC for Season 1! Héctor Rivera, the Executive Director of the Research and Development Institute for Gifted Students and founder of the Puerto Rico Parents’ Association spoke about strategies used by Héctor and the Institute of Research and Development for Gifted Students in Puerto Rico, to ensure that the rights to education are guaranteed for this population. In addition, he shared some of the achievements and difficulties they have encountered over the past 20 years. This CWC was very motivating to see how parents, teachers and advocates worked together on the academic, social and emotional development of their children and students. It was fascinating and inspiring to hear what is happening for gifted children in a US territory not even the size of Connecticut. To watch this session please check out our Resource page under Conversations with CAGT. If you missed any of our other “conversations” from our first season, you can find them on our Resource page as well, or on CAGT’s FaceBook page or our YouTube channel. Enjoy!

Tuesday, June 8th was our final CWC of our inaugural year. Can you believe we shared over 51 “conversations” with local, national and international experts in the field of gifted education? We loved seeing members and friends of CAGT from around the world who joined us every Tuesday night live at 5:00. We are taking a short break for the summer, but you can binge watch any or all of our sessions you may have missed right here on our Resource page. We hope you are able to join us for Conversations with CAGT Season 2 which will begin on Tuesday, August 3rd on our FB page live at 5:00! Enjoy your summer and see you soon!

COVID-19 Update / Resources

During this difficult time of CDC and statewide precautions due to Covid-19 CAGT wants you to know that we are continuing our work advocating for the needs of our gifted children. 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.
