The Georgia Association for Gifted Children is excited to share that as in previous years, Governor Deal has issued a proclamation that January 2019 is Gifted Education Month in Georgia!
It is a critical time to demonstrate to decision-makers the impact of excellent gifted programming happening around our state, and Gifted Education Month provides a platform. Please join us in sharing on our GAGC Facebook page and tagging GAGC and your state representatives as you post examples of rigorous learning experiences and/or testimonials this month:
- · @GAGCGifted
- · #GiftedGA
- · @Governor Deal
- · @NAGCGifted or #NAGC
You can look up your representatives at this link: https://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do.
In honor of Gifted Education Month, please post often and also invite your government representatives, Board of Education members, superintendent, school administrators, teachers, community leaders, parents, and local news/newspaper reporters to see the many ways gifted education impacts all students in your district. This can be a time of advocacy for gifted students and for gifted education, emphasizing the importance of challenging all students to reach their potential.
Please share this proclamation with your school board, teachers, parents, and community members as we highlight ways that gifted education transforms the lives of our Georgia students.

The proclamation emphasizes the importance of developing the potential of Georgia’s children in the areas of academics, creativity, leadership, and fine arts. It recognizes that our teachers and educational leaders work together with our community to provide the key learning experiences that engage and inspire our students. Finally, it calls for us to recognize the unique learning needs of gifted and talented students and advocate for rigorous educational programming to meet these advanced learning needs.
