HHA Awarded Distinguished EGATE Status by MSDE
 
Thanks to the work of our talented staff, especially Director of Enrichment Laura Guitian and STEM Tutor Zoe Fortier, HHA has qualified for the 2015 Maryland Excellence in Gifted and Talented Education (EGATE) school award.  The EGATE application process required school teams to reflect upon and document the ways in which the school’s gifted and talented education program is aligned with the Maryland Criteria for Excellence: Gifted and Talented Education Program Guidelines.  This year, the Maryland State Advisory Council on Gifted and Talented Education reviewed EGATE applications from across the state and identified six schools which qualified as EGATE schools. 

Schools that earn the EGATE designation

•will receive a Governor’s citation and a citation from the Maryland State Department of Education;

•be recognized at a statewide reception on February 24, 2016;

•display the Excellence in Gifted and Talented Education (EGATE) school banner;

•appear on the MSDE website as an Excellence in Gifted and Talented Education (EGATE) school;

•host celebratory EGATE visits from members of the Maryland State Department of Education and the State Advisory Council for Gifted and Talented Education;

•serve as a model and resource to other schools planning to achieve the EGATE status.
