Here is info on a talk mentioned by LEV (I'm correcting this because they are not sponsoring it):
This Tuesday, the 24th at Highline Community College and LEV calls it:
Public Presentation on Gifted Education
but Highline calls it
Black Youth and Gifted/Accelerated Education
The speaker is Dr. Mary Ruth Coleman of the University of North Carolina and the moderator is Dr. Stephanie Wood-Garnett of UW.
Here's a link with info at the Washington State Commission on African-American Affairs.
There's a free dinner at 6 p.m. and an extended Q&A but seating is limited. They want you to register for this talk.
Dr. Coleman gave a presentation to OSPI's Highly Capable Technical Working Group which is working on recommendations about gifted education in Washington state. There's some interesting reading at this link.
What I find odd is that LEV makes it sound like this is about general gifted education and the Highline link makes it sound like it's more about outreach to minority families and gifted education. LEV also says it's about "how a child is selected to enroll in a gifted program" which is puzzling because that varies from district to district, state to state.
It's probably an interesting talk but I wouldn't go looking for specifics on how SPS serves highly capable students.
