Background

In the Spring of 2011, the Bellevue School District Gifted Programs contracted with Dr. Joyce Van Tassel-Baska, from the College of William and Mary, to perform a comprehensive program review of the policies and practices of our gifted programs. The findings and recommendations from the review were presented in June, 2011. The purpose of the Gifted Advisory Committee is to provide input, recommendations, and feedback that align with the district mission and goals to the Gifted Elementary School Program (GESP), the Gifted Middle School Program (GMSP) and the Gifted High School Program (GHSP) and the central office administration.

Committee Members

The Gifted Advisory Committee is chaired by Lora McHugh, Supervisor of Gifted Programs.
