Welcome to GTAC!

What is the Gifted and Talented Parent Advisory Committee (GTAC)?

The G/T Parent Advisory Committee (GTAC) is a long-standing group of Howard County parents and community members who are interested in G/T programs offered by the Howard County Public School System (HCPSS).  This committee works with the HCPSS G/T office, school administrators, G/T resource teachers, and other school personnel to receive updates, ask questions, and provide feedback related to G/T programs.

G/T Educator Recognition Night

Every spring, GTAC hosts an event to celebrate educators who make a meaningful difference in the lives of advanced-level learners throughout Howard County.  This year's G/T Educator Recognition Night took place on April 19, 2017 at Howard High School.  Over 100 educators were celebrated this year.  Thanks to all who helped make this event a success!  Check back next school year for news on the 2018 event.
