gifted arts elem. - direction


Date: Thu Sep 12 2002 - 14:02:33 PDT

Hello fellow art educaters,
For nearly 3 years I have sought direction from my district gifted
director(s) for the so called established gifted art program in my district
to no avail. Im so frustrated by blow offs and a now nearly extinct program
with no guidelines, money or enthusiasm by part of the administration. I can
not and will not let the elementary gifted students that I see weekly just be
overlooked due to the fact that each new director wants to "look into
programs out there" .
Ive decided to take it on myself, although Im sure this will be an uphill
battle. Looks like Ive discovered my thesis.
What established programs can I begin researching and comparing?
Where do I begin? Ive seen postings here and will visit the archive to seek
more information on my own. Anyone have a gifted art elementary program in
place that I can look into?
