The Committee supports Roanoke City Schools, the Superintendent, and the staff in their efforts on behalf of gifted and talented students; makes recommendations and commendations to the division concerning programming and staff development in order to ensure appropriate education and academic excellence for all gifted and talented students; and serves as a resource for gifted and talented educational information.
