2003-2004 Annual Report, Programs for the Gifted

 

In 1999, the Code of Virginia was modified to provide that

each school division shall submit the annual report, Programs for the Gifted, as required by the Board of Education regulations. [22.1-18.1]

 

Each school division will find its specific annual report spreadsheet and instructions for completing the annual report on the departments Web page at the following Internet address:

 

http://www.pen.k12.va.us/VDOE/Publications/Gifted/datacoll/coll.shtml

 

The 2003-2004 annual report, Programs for the Gifted, solicits information from school divisions regarding membership and services in gifted programs. Users will note that information in items #1, #2, and #3 of the 2004 annual report, Programs for the Gifted, corresponds with data divisions submitted to the department in their student data report dated March 31, 2004.

 

Divisions should use Microsoft Excel 98 or higher to complete the annual report. Completed reports should be sent electronically, as an attachment, to the Department of Education (gar2004@mail.vak12ed.edu) by September 27, 2004. A copy of the cover page with the superintendents signature should be mailed to Dr. Barbara McGonagill, Office of Secondary Instructional Services, Virginia Department of Education, P.O. Box 2120, Richmond, VA 23218-2120.

 

Questions regarding the document or the process may be addressed to Dr. McGonagill(bmcgonag@mail.vak12ed.edu), specialist, Governors Schools and Gifted Education, Office of Secondary Instructional Services, at 804/225-2884.
