WHEMS Becomes a Gifted and Advanced Learning (GAL) Site!
Schools participating as Gifted and Advanced Learning (GAL)
sites work in tandem with the Office of Gifted and Advanced Learning and engage
in a multi-year process whereby each school works towards earning the state
designation as an Excellence in Gifted and Talented Education (EGATE) School.
To that end, each GAL site commits to universal identification of K-2 students
via nationally normed ability and achievement assessments, implementation of
gifted curricula for grades K-5 (Jacob’s Ladder, M2/M3, William & Mary
Science and Math Units…), accelerated curricula for grades 6-8, targeted and
sustained professional development of all staff members around best practices
in gifted education, and a larger commitment to regularly monitor, evaluate,
and report on the progress of identified learners and selected learning
