The 20022003 annual report, Programs for the Gifted, solicits information from school divisions regarding membership and services in gifted programs.

Completed reports should be sent electronically, as an attachment, to the Department of Education (gar2003@mail.vak12ed.edu) by July 31, 2003. Questions regarding the document or the process may be addressed to Dr. Barbara McGonagill (bmcgonag@pen.k12.va.us), specialist, Governors Schools and Gifted Education, Office of Secondary Instructional Services, at 804/225-2884.
