Dear Family and Friends of Gifted Children,
Below is a simple way we can make a difference toward bringing back state support of gifted education.
Please act on the suggestion below from AAGT.
President, Gilbert Supporters of the Gifted
From AAGT ...
Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas, is holding a listening tour around the state. There are not that many scheduled, but this is the time she is collecting feedback on what is important to people regarding education in the state.
On the Arizona Department of Education website (link below) are instructions to email her now while she is asking for feedback. The website makes it very easy to send an email directly to the Superintendent.
- Email Superintendent Diane Douglas at this website: http://www.azed.gov/
- Click here for a sample letter containing AAGT talking points that you can copy, paste and personalize.
You can shorten the letter to touch on what is most important to you. Before you copy and paste, be sure to personalize the letter signature. If you want to write your own letter with your personal story, do that!
Important points to include in your letter:
- Be sure to ask her what she (her office) plans to do.
- Be sure to put something about "support gifted education" in the subject line of the email.
This is pretty easy and should take you just a few minutes! It is vital that many people are asking this question, so please get your friends and family to send emails or attend any of the tour dates listed on the website!
