MCPS Gifted Education - Parent Information

Parent Resources

The Office of Gifted Education in Montgomery County Public Schools is fortunate to be able to share an important resource with families of our students. We have compiled a Parent Resource Collection of books, reference materials, and other information that we offer on a check-out basis for up to two weeks at a time. It is our hope that this collection of current educational and parenting resources will strengthen home and school connections. We would like to encourage our parents to participate effectively in their child’s educational development and gain knowledge about gifted learners and other topics by using the materials available through our collection.
You can view this catalog online here  (or via goo.gl/0A2k00) or request a paper copy from the Gifted Resource Teacher at your child’s school.
Order requests may be submitted via email to: giftedresource@mcps.org or through the Gifted Resource Teacher using the Materials Request form. Books will be checked out through the school library system in your child’s name and are to be returned to the Gifted Resource Teacher in their school.

The National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) shares definitions of "giftedness" on their site: http://www.nagc.org/resources-publications/resources/definitions-giftedness
