AAGT is the Voice of Arizona’s Gifted and Talented Children! And we are actively working on their behalf with State Legislators to restore funding for gifted education in the State. Restoring funding will provide professional development for teachers, and provide resources, programs and services important in the whole education of our gifted students! Your support and active involvement is needed!
How you can help right now-
-Attend precinct meetings leading up to the primary election and ask the question of the candidates, “Would you be in favor of restoring funding for Gifted Education in Statute?”
-Find out the names of Legislators in your District. Email or call them. Tell your story of why restoring funding is important to you. Ask to see each one in person and consider bringing a gifted student(s) along with you. Continue to be in contact with your State Senator and Representatives so you can help each one be an informed supporter of restoring funding for gifted education.
-Register to attend the AAGT Parent Institute on . This is a great opportunity to network with others about parenting and educating gifted children. In addition you will hear more about our initiatives to raise awareness about the learning differences of gifted students and the avenues we will be pursuing to restore funding to support educational opportunities commensurate with our gifted students’ advanced abilities.
YOU are important. Do not underestimate the difference YOU can make!
Please join us!
Hope to meet you soon!
