Gifted & Talented Parent Group


The mission of the Gifted and Talented Parent Advisory Board is to encourage and advance communication between parents, teachers, and district leaders in such a way that brings teamwork to the educational process and gives the GT students in the district the most effective, comprehensive and challenging education possible.

Our goal is to make the Elmbrook GT PAB a valuable resource for parents, teachers, and district leaders through the use of parent focus groups, evaluation of gifted programming, support from GT organizations, guest speakers, and parent-to-parent involvement.

A Gifted & Talented Comprehensive Program Review is underway now. For a summary and timeline, please click here to read plan.
