Acceleration is proven to be an effective strategy yet is underutilized or not offered at all in many districts. The WATG Acceleration Committee set out to research, analyze, and develop action steps to improve acceleration practices and strengthen gifted education in Wisconsin. Advanced and Accelerated Learning in Wisconsin: Moving Wisconsin Students Forward is the culmination of the committee's work and recommendations.
