Cag’s statewide impact
Cag Legislative Action
Gifted students are found in all populations and grade levels. As a result, California must develop the intellectual capacity and the intellectual potential of the next generation to ensure that the state has the opportunity to be a leader in a competitive market. California Association for the Gifted strongly endorses differentiation and excellence in educational programming to meet this goal.
Parents and educators in the California Association for the Gifted (CAG) have been the principal supporters of gifted learners in California since 1966.
