About the Office of Gifted Education

The Office of Gifted Education administers the state's Exceptional Children's Educational Act (ECEA) in the Colorado Revised Statutes.

Administrative Units (AUs) oversee and provide educational services to gifted students. An AU is defined as a school district, a board of cooperative educational services (BOCES), or the state Charter School Institute (CSI). The Office of Gifted Education provides AUs guidance for implementation of their gifted program plan and collaborates with the AU to monitor implementation of key requirements of ECEA.

Partnerships with gifted educators, students, families, organizations, and the Gifted Education State Advisory Committee contribute to implementation design and continued improvements in gifted education.
