What Happened to CANDO?
Good question! CANDO has disappeared from the Batavia landscape. It is waiting for YOU, and parents like YOU, to step into positions on CANDO's Executive Board. For over a decade, CANDO has been the source for ideas and advocacy that benefitted Batavia's gifted and high-ability students K-12.
CANDO is the only Batavia Interschool Council member group that does not charge a membership fee. CANDO cannot solicit membership via BPS101 (because student participation in high-ability (gifted) services is determined by MAP test scores, BPS101 will not release participants' parent contact information to CANDO; and in recent years BPS101 has not been willing to facilitate introducing parents of newly identified gifted students to CANDO).
These BPS101 services for gifted and high-ability students exist because of CANDO's research and advocacy efforts:
