We're transforming the Region 10 AP Summit into the Secondary GT Summit so that we can offer a more expansive opportunity for teachers of advanced students in grades 6-12. Participants will still have the opportunity to attend sessions presented by the College Board. Additionally, there will be a variety of sessions designed for secondary educators to recognize meaningful differences in high-ability students and gain strategies to meet students’ unique educational needs. Registration is currently open, and presentation proposals are now being accepted. You can follow event details at bit.ly/SecondaryGT
