Join us for Gifted Bootcamp!

Bootcamp is...

for new gifted teachers and administrators who want to learn the basics of gifted education in Pennsylvania or for those veteran teachers and administrators who want to freshen up their skills.


Participants will receive 8 hours of ACT 48. There is minimal work before each session.


Participants will need to attend all three sessions to receive ACT 48 credit.

Day 1

Thursday, Sep. 16th, 9-11am

Day 1 is an overview of gifted in Pennsylvania. This session provides some insight into who are our gifted children, what is Chapter 16 and what social/emotional needs do our students have.

Day 2

Thursday, Sep. 30th, 9-11am

This is an online event.

Day 2 is all about the GIEP process. This day will walk participants from screening and evaluation through GIEP writing.

Day 3

Thursday, Oct. 14th, 9-11am

Day 3 wraps things up by talking about progress monitoring, the Gifted Guidelines, and the FAQs. We also talk about what compliance monitoring looks like from a districts perspective and how to have conversations with families about their children.

This will take you to a registration through MCIU so you can get ACT 48 for your course. We report the ACT 48 quarterly so there might be a delay in your completion and the reporting to PDE.
