Description of Event.
THURS 1/11, 6:30 – 8:30pm at Stillwater Middle School Media Center | St. Croix Valley Gifted welcomes Carol Maleug, MCGT State Board President, for a CHAT Night conversation that dives into academic acceleration for gifted learners: why, when, and how?

Should conversations focus on learning pace, depth, rigor, or some combination? Who should be involved and how do Minnesota education policies play a role? What common myths or stereotypes about giftedness and acceleration may surface during those discussions? How can student data and the research on acceleration guide the decision process in ways that support the whole child?
