ACISD GT Program Represented at State Level

Published: 8:52 AM on February 21, 2013

The Aransas County ISD Gifted and Talented Program is being represented at various state conferences. In the early fall semester, Dr. Neva Kelly, ACISD Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction served by invitation on a state panel at the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) / Texas Association of School Board (TASB) conference to help school districts in the state of Texas understand the standards outlined in the Texas State Plan for the Education of Gifted and Talented Students.  In December, Dr. Kelly and Sherry Myers, ACISD Gifted and Talented Coordinator, presented a talk at the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented (TAGT) state conference outlining the five sections of the GT State Plan and explained how ACISD is moving from a strictly compliant GT program to an exemplary program as addressed in the State Plan.

The educators pictured will once again represent Aransas County ISD by presenting at the TAGT Regional Conference in Corpus Christi on February 23. Presentations will include Linda Erwin, Little Bay Primary Media Specialist/GT Teacher, sharing her successes with gifted students in a session titled, Do Your Part for Art: Unleashing Creativity in the Kindergarten G/T Program. Mrs. Erwin’s instruction is a part of the Texas Performance Standards Project (TPSP) which is encouraged by the Texas Education Agency. Jessica Janota, RFMS social studies teacher, and Kathleen Cady RFMS Media Specialist/Campus GT Coordinator will share enthusiastic ways for serving middle school GT students in their presentation titled, Lights, Camera, Action: Technology in the G/T Classroom. Dr. Kelly and Mrs. Myers will also present a session titled, Moving from Compliance to an Exemplary G/T Program. These two ladies have also been invited to serve with the TAGT Associate Director Tracy Weinberg in presenting information to school leaders at the TASB Winter Governance and Legal Seminar to be held April 9 in Corpus Christi.

ACISD has strived to serve their gifted and talented students in ways that allow the students to meet their maximum potentials.  The district appreciates the ladies who have willingly given their time to share their experiences while continuing to work toward an exemplary GT program in ACISD.
