Governor Murphy signed a proclamation recognizing March as Gifted & Talented students Month in NJ, but unfortunately the presentation did not occur as scheduled at the NJAGC annual conference on March 20, as it was canceled due to COVID-19. Read the important statements of support in both pieces.
In February 2018, NJAGC shared Best Practices for gifted at three Regional Networking Meetings hosted by the NJDoE. Check out these slideshows and the valuable information shared. Ask your county education specialists to host more trainings in gifted education! NJAGC will provide speakers.
