Join TAGT for the online New Coordinator Boot Camp on August 3, 2020! Created by TAGT Emerging Leaders Program Alumni, this program is designed to provide new and aspiring district G/T coordinators with the knowledge and skills needed to begin this position with direction and understanding while providing the resources to effectively build and maintain appropriate educational services for G/T students in the district. The workshop will include an overview of Texas G/T state and local policy, the Texas State Plan for the Education of G/T Students, identification and assessment, professional development requirements, and building internal and external relationships.
