ECBOCES is committed to providing our districts with support, resources, and professional development educators need to better serve their gifted student population. We have a Gifted Education Regional Consultant (GERC) who works closely with district gifted education coordinators to monitor and develop a program plan that specifies guidelines for gifted identification and programming options. Our GERC provides support to educators by offering a variety of professional development options, including classroom instructional modeling, that focus on using effective instructional strategies and programs to enhance rigor and challenge in the regular classroom. In addition, we organize annual regional events for gifted students throughout our region to provide opportunities for them to engage with their peers and engage in activities that have been specifically designed for students with their characteristics.
