We propose examining this part of the charge by trying to focus our work on two related areas, student transitions and school structures. School structures recommendations focus primarily on the institutional changes that might need to occur. Student transitions recommendations focus mainly on ways to improve students’ success in transitioning from secondary to post-secondary education.
Gifted and Talented Youth Week
Governor Mark Dayton has proclaimed November 2-8, 2014, to be Gifted and Talented Youth Week in Minnesota. In addition to recognizing the unique potential of gifted and talented youth, seize the opportunity to laud the efforts of the parents, educators, counselors and psychologists with whom they work. Their sustained efforts, coupled with the organized advocacy of the Minnesota Council for Gifted and Talented (MCGT) and the Minnesota Educators of Gifted and Talented (MEGT), help make our state one in which gifted learners are honored and valued.
