TBT | NAGC Administrator ToolBox for Implementing Gifted Services

SeptCoverThe September 2015 issue of Superintendent Magazine, monthly member publication of The School Superintendents Association (AASA), has a feature focus on Gifted Education and five (5) accompanying articles that offer thought and approaches to GT services through the vantage point of a school administrator.

This Throwback Thursday update from our prior website introduces another resource aimed school administrators, the NAGC Administrator ToolBox.


The National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) makes a set of Administrator tools and resources available online that offer a starting point for conversation and implementing relevant education strategy for high-ability learners.

Because of the increasing number of requests for information for administrators about high-ability and high-potential learners, NAGC convened a task force of administrators to develop concise videos, fact sheets, and supporting documents — tools that district leaders can use as briefing materials and as the starting point to advocate for and implement services for gifted students.

Materials in the NAGC Administrator Toolbox address:

  • the rationale for gifted education services
  • the critical elements of gifted education programming
  • accountability for gifted student learning, and
  • the connection between gifted education and other initiatives such as 21st century skills and Response to Intervention (RtI)

The companion NAGC Administrator Video Channel on YouTube offers another way to dive into these topics:

  • Rationale for Gifted Education
  • Basics of Gifted Education
  • Accountability for Gifted Student Learning
  • Connecting Gifted Education to Other School Practices

MCGT is one of two State Affiliate organizations associated with NAGC, the other being Minnesota Educators for the Gifted and Talented (MEGT). MCGT members are eligible for a reduced rate affiliate membership in NAGC.
