Personal Goal and Action Plan

The Personal Goal and Action Plan form will be used to develop a personal goal and action plan to hone a leadership skill or gain knowledge and expertise in an area of need related to the gifted program in your school district. Possible ideas include: create a plan to improve communications with G/T parents, develop a recommendation to improve district identification of G/T students from poverty, or develop a professional development plan for both new and existing classroom and G/T teachers in the district.
