ALL CHILDREN BENEFIT FROM an education that challenges them, according to Carolyn Callahan (left), who has served as director of the University of Virginia’s National Research Center on the Gifted and Talented for more than 15 years. But there are highly creative students and students from nontraditional backgrounds that do less well in the current advanced placement and international baccalaureate programs than others, said Callahan. Callahan is part of an effort to improve these programs to meet the needs of a wider spectrum of children based on the practices of exceptional educators who “make content real, exciting and understandable.” Full story.

Facilities Update: Resurfacing of McCormick Road Set to Begin Today

Beginning today, motorists traveling on the section of McCormick Road from Alderman Road to University Avenue can expect delays as milling and paving gets under way. The milling will occur today and tomorrow from 5 p.m. until midnight. (This will involve the noise from the milling machine and truck traffic removing the milled asphalt). Asphalt installation will occur during normal working hours. The road repairs will restrict traffic to one lane. Project completion is scheduled for Friday, weather permitting.
