Gifted students are found in all populations and grade levels. As a result, California must develop the intellectual capacity and the intellectual potential of the next generation to ensure that the state has the opportunity to be a leader in a competitive market. California Association for the Gifted strongly endorses differentiation and excellence in educational programming to meet this goal.
CAG hires a part-time lobbyist who continually monitors proposed legislative initiatives that impact gifted education at the state level. Through periodic legislative updates, members are kept informed about potential legislation and rulings that may be issued by the California Department of Education (CDE). We work closely with CDE to address trends in gifted curriculum and accountability for program and educator standards.
CAG Members Receive Quarterly Publications
The Gifted Education Communicator is a quarterly journal on topics of interest and benefit to parents and educators.
The CAG Newsletter is an electronic newsletter sent to all CAG members in a downloadable format. Thus it is most important that we have current email addresses for all of our members.
CAG members will also receive periodic notification of educational opportunities and matters of legislative urgency.
