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!

On Tuesday, October 12th Nisia Patalan was our guest and she shared her session: “Removing Barriers in Gifted Education”.  She discussed personal journeys, the use of demographic data to promote change, and multiple pathways to gifted identification.  Through innovative practices and beliefs, Nisia feels we can increase identification and access for students whose potential has not yet been tapped. If you didn’t catch this CWC live, 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!

This coming Tuesday, Oct. 19th  Angelina Paolozza will be joining us to share her presentation, An Introduction to Addressing Fairness in Ability Tests. During this CWC, Angelina will share reports that tests used for identification of gifted and talented should meet specific standards for fairness which is particularly important for equitable identification. Angelina gives attendees a first-hand look at how test developers review, pilot, and select items for an ability test. We hope you are able to join us for this informative Conversations with CAGT on our FB page live at 5:00! See you then!

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.
