Case Study: Mary Gifted Program
A new gifted program has been established in the Mary School District. The Director of Gifted Instruction is identifying students who meet the criteria for the program and those students would then be educated in a specific building. The principals throughout the district have ensured compliance of the gifted testing requirements and are preparing for the student transfers. One principal, Dr. Brown, appears to be sabotaging the situation. He does not want his gifted students to leave his building and report that he does not have gifted students. His overall motivation for this sabotage is that he fears his building’s overall test scores will decline. The Director of Gifted Instruction elicits the support of the superintendent.
Complete the following in the given order
1. As superintendent explain how you would educate the principal as to why the gifted program is a positive move for the school and the students.
2. Support your response citing state law, and policies and procedures within the Jamaican setting and best practices in gifted education.
3. Describe at least two potential challenges (e.g., transportation, teacher shortages, and building test scores) and explain how you would manage these as the superintendent.
