Report and Findings from 2017-2018 Community Feedback

St. Croix Valley Gifted announces the final report of findings from our 2017-2018 Community Feedback initiative. Were there any big surprises? What the community shared echoes many concerns, observations, and experiences you’ve shared with us since this local MCGT chapter formed in 2012 and during our 2015 survey. It’s fair to say that reaction to current local GT supports and services is mixed, and there’s plenty of room for growth and improvement. (This is a report card after all!) Please keep in mind that this effort was...

MON 2/12 @ 6:00pm | What People Say About Gifted Education

What do people say about Gifted Education? Is it necessary? Funded? Provided? Reaching local kids who need it? Why is it often so tough to find clear answers to these and other questions parents have about supports in place for GT learners? Is there a roadmap or silver bullet answer? Do you wonder whether the grass is greener somewhere else?

TUES 11/14 @ 6:30pm | Drawing Out Potential: Kids & Underachievement

It’s a common misconception that ‘gifted’ equates to high achievement. Without sustained access to appropriate learning, highly capable kids who don’t experience challenge may coast to “get by,” develop habits that mask their abilities, tune out, act out, or even drop out. What’s the impact when kids disengage or fly under the radar? Is underachievement a ‘phase’ or reason to address a possibly enduring pattern? Join St. Croix Valley Gifted for a conversation that peels away at factors...
