Job Description

This character is based on a real person.
Rita is Asian and in her 40s. Her biography states her views on education of the Gifted. Script is approx 30 minutes in length. Each section is approximately 3 mintues total. This character is supposed to sound as if you are in the same class room together.
One of her quotes:

Rita (Middle School Principal): What an interesting challenge. This is such a “touchy” situation. Students identified as gifted in their elementary school may no longer be identified as gifted at the middle school level. You can just imagine what that conversation would be like with parents! Here are just two of the problems: 1) We have several feeder schools, and all of them identify their gifted in different ways. 2) Illinois guidelines indicate the top 5% of a school can be eligible for gifted services; what happens when a student who was consistently in the top 5% of their elementary school no longer even makes the top 5% in middle school? Working with those two thoughts only, I would need strong communication skills for several reasons. Parents as well as elementary teachers have the right to understand why not all elementary gifted students may be served in our gifted program. I would also need to make our counselors aware of the characteristics of gifted students. Further, I would like to host an articulation meeting between the elementary teachers and the middle school teachers, so that there is a student advocate for gifted placement at the middle school level. Because of the diverse population being served, I would want to know what criteria, besides standardized tests, are used to place the elementary gifted students. I could go on and on, but this should provide a few ideas about why there are more communication issues that occur at the middle school level than at the elementary school level.
