Gifted and Talented Coordinator Network
The CESA #11 Gifted and Talented education network recognizes that students who possess exceptional gifts and talents should be granted the direction, time, encouragement and resources required to maximize their potential. We, as a community, have a responsibility to identify and develop students’ full potential in the areas of general intellectual ability, specific academic ability, creativity, artistic ability and leadership. Through the CESA #11 Gifted and Talented Network, opportunities for academic enrichment and social emotional support will be provided for students. In addition, we will continually offer professional support for those leading the education of students whose needs extend beyond the core curriculum.
Gifted and Talented Network Core Values:
Early recognition of student potential and needs is essential.
Using multiple criteria, identification of students is ongoing and continuous.
Communication with other gifted and talented professionals is critical to support quality programming.
Appropriate professional development is essential to ensure best practice.
Interaction with students to guide enrichment opportunities, both academic and social, must occur.
Appropriate time must be dedicated to the program to enable the development of opportunities and resources, as well as, the ability to work with students, teachers, and parents.
