Today I attended the Board meeting of the California Association for the Gifted (CAG) which was held in Santa Clara, California. I am the Parent Representative for the Palomar Region which covers San Diego and Imperial Counties. My colleague, Sue Ann Bussey, is the Education Representative for the same region. We sat together during the Board meeting and collaborated on our 2016-2017 regional plan which includes volunteering our time and expertise to hold regional meetings with parents and educators for the purpose of sharing information in regard to CAG. It is our plan to build and maintain a regional network of support and leadership for students, parents, teachers, and administrators involved with GATE education and to promote new membership in CAG within our region. We also work with our local legislators as resources and advocates of gifted education to keep them informed of current issues in our area.
Tomorrow a portion of our meeting will focus on planning our annual 2017 CAG conference which will be held in San Diego, California on March 3-5. We hope to see administrators, teachers, and parents of gifted children from all over the state of California and especially from our Palomar Region attend this conference.
If you have any questions or need more information about Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) in the San Diego or Imperial County areas, please feel free to contact Sue Ann Bussey or Jenelle S. Miller through our regional page on the CAG website.
