Special Presentation: Acceleration for Gifted Students
by Debbie Clelland, PhD, RCC
Acceleration is more than grade skipping! It can be a great option for many gifted students. Many parents don’t know that there is a lot of research support, and ways to set this up for success to include looking at social-emotional environments. The presentation will briefly introduce the 20 forms of acceleration, why they might be a good choice for your child, and how Educational Policy in BC currently supports acceleration options.
At the AGM, you will have the opportunity to elect the board directors for 2018-2019.
The Call for Nominations of Directors is now closed. Please note that we still are looking for volunteers for our three new committees:
- Advocacy & Awareness
- Membership & Outreach
If you are interested in joining one of these committees, you can let us know on your membership application.
You can also email us should you be interested in a committee position.
