The Highly Capable Program Technical Working Group has concluded its major deliberations. Their recommendations will be presented to the QEC on Tuesday, November 16. Although the agenda has not yet been posted, we have been told that Gayle Pauley will be making the presentation at 1:00 and has an hour and a quarter to do so. Check the QEC website for the agenda to verify the time.
This meeting of the QEC will be webcast live by TVW and will be archived for those unable to watch during the day.
The Coalition will make a short presentation in support of the recommendations.
Neither presentation is in final form as of right now but copies will be sent out when they become available.
Meantime, don’t forget to contact your legislators regarding funding. Highly Capable Programs are clearly on the “chopping block,” there is the possibility of a special session in early December to deal with the second supplemental budget, and there is the biennial budget to consider. The time to act is right now. See our last message for details on how to do this.
Thank you for your continuing support for our gifted students.
