Balanced research and practice
Robust gifted education policies provide a framework for identification, services, teacher preparedness, accountability for student learning and program evaluation. Together, these policies define comprehensive, equitable opportunities for high achieving and high-potential students. Having well-designed and approved policies in place reflects an education agency’s commitment to gifted learners and provides a foundation for advocacy. In this session, presenters will discuss policies and data-collection that provides evidence that gifted education services increase achievement and student success.
