Advisory Committee for Gifted Education
Loudoun County sponsors an Advisory Committee for Gifted Education. This committee serves as a support group to review and make suggestions about gifted programs and to promote community awareness of gifted education. School personnel, community members, and parents are selected to serve on the committee. Every effort is made to have a broad-based group of committee members from all high school attendance areas.

Is it the entertaining teachers, great extracurricular activities, or rewards for grades? Not really. Students need to find school intrinsically interesting, which means that they need to experience success and purpose. Have you noticed that what students call “fun” usually meets those needs? This presentation helps families and educators understand and apply what works in motivating achievement in all learners.Wednesday, November 29, 20177:00 pm - 8:30 pmLCPS Administrative Building, Rooms 102 A & BMonday, September 18, 20177:00 pm - 8:30 pmLCPS Administrative Building, Learning Commons (5th Floor)Topic: Supporting the Social-Emotional Needs of Gifted StudentsSpeaker: Dr. Jim DelisleSub-Committee Sign-Up - Click this link to sign-up to serve on one of the sub-committees.2016-2017 MeetingsMay 16, 20176:30 pm - 8:00 pmFarmwell Station Middle SchoolTopic: Gifted Strategic Action PlanSpeaker: Dr. Joyce VanTassel-BaskaSee Bottom of Page for VideoMarch 9, 20177:00 pm - 8:30 pmLCPS Administration Building, Room 100 ATopics: Young Scholars Program (JKCF) & Academic AccelerationJanuary 12, 20177:00 pm - 8:30 pmLCPS Administration BuildingLearning Commons (5th Floor)Topic: Executive Function Skills & Gifted StudentsThe originally scheduled speaker will be unable to attend.
