G/T Awareness Week
The TAGT Advocacy Committee is pleased to announce that the third G/T Awareness Week will occur beginning September 24, 2018!
This week was created to increase awareness and encourage support of gifted education in Texas. Through online community discussions and social media posts, parents, educators, and advocates come together to celebrate giftedness. All throughout the week, TAGT will push out information and created conversations to dispel myths and provide a deeper understanding of the purpose of gifted education.
The 2018 theme is #WhyGT with the mission of empowering advocates of gifted and talented students to share why G/T is important to them.
