Superintendent's 2012 GT Forum

Background Materials and Forum Reporting


MCPS Superintendent Dr. Joshua Starr held a Community Forum on Gifted and Talented Education on Thursday, March 22, 2012 starting at 7 pm, at Magruder High School (link to map).

This was an important opportunity to show Dr. Starr and MCPS the interest and concerns of parents about gifted and talented education in MCPS. With so many GT parents and students, with so many questions and comments, GTAMC determined that there would not be time for everyone to be heard.

But it was important that Dr. Starr and staff members from AEI, hear all of our questions and comments, appreciate the strength of our interest, and address the issues that most concern us.

Member of the public were invited to submit questions and concerns in advance, by Tuesday, March 20, 5:00 p.m.—form below—and to wear Green for Gifted to the meeting. The comments below were then compiled and submitted to Dr. Starr.
