    • Clarify monitoring of programs: increase accountability; develop performance standards, evidence-based; clarify process, done regularly

    • Clarify budget allocations/transfers

  • AIG Program Standards: Adopted by SBE, July 2009. Guides local AIG Programs and Plans. Put in SBE policy, December 2012

Failure to help gifted children reach their potential is a societal tragedy, the extent of which is difficult to measure but is surely great. How can we measure the loss of the sonata unwritten, the curative drug undiscovered, the absence of political insight? They are the difference between what we are and what we could be as a society.James J. Gallagher, Ph.D. Senior Scientist Emeritus, FPG CDC, UNC-CH
