Last week Vernon ISD scheduled a Gifted and Talented (GT) meeting for parents to learn more about the program and how week it could benefit their children. We sent flyers home with our elementary and middle school students, and posted information about the meeting on our Facebook and website. We expected and planned for 75 parents -- and only 3 showed up. We know this is a very busy time of year and the reasons behind this lack of attendance may vary, including conflicting work schedules, transportation challenges, conflicts with a child’s extracurricular activity, a community event, or perhaps a lack of awareness about the significance of this meeting. Maybe VISD encouraging parental involvement through alternative means, such as virtual participation or providing meeting summaries, could help bridge this gap and foster a more collaborative approach between educators and parents. The low attendance of parents at the after-hour GT meeting raises Vernon ISD’s concerns about the level of engagement in a child's academic journey. Children benefit greatly in the classroom when their parent or guardian are engaged in their education. The meeting last week offered a valuable insight into our district’s newly adopted GT selection criteria and our student's specialized educational needs and progress. Collaboration is a two-way street and Vernon ISD will continue to search for ways to connect with parents supporting the unique educational requirements of our GT students.
