KRS 158.648 establishes and defines the purpose and duties of the SACGTE. The governor-appointed council acts in an advisory capacity to formulate and offer recommendations related to services for gifted and talented students.
These recommendations are made to the Commissioner of Education, the Kentucky Board of Education and the Education Professional Standards Board. The council’s recommendations are influential in formulating the policy decisions of these agencies relative to the education of gifted and talented students.
The council meets an average of 5-6 times per year. The minutes from these meetings are posted on the right hand tool bar.
