Office of Gifted Education

Overview

Welcome to the gifted education section of the CDE website. We hope that at this site, you will find answers to many of your questions and the support you need for working with highly-able students. This office administers the state’s Exceptional Children’s Act (ECEA) for students with exceptional academic potential and abilities. It provides guidance for identification, programming, and accountability for administrative units delivering local gifted programs. A regional (10) system of support and service delivers professional development, technical assistance, and peer collaboration throughout Colorado. Partnerships with gifted education staff, families, organizations, and a State Advisory Committee contribute to implementation design and continued improvements in gifted education.

The Office of Gifted Education is one of three offices under the Exceptional Student Services Unit (along with the Office of Special Education and the Office of Facility Schools).

Vision

All Gifted students will accomplish challenging post-secondary work/force goals and become productive, creative citizens capable of succeeding in their area of strength.

Mission

Ensure gifted student growth and achievement through systems of support, programming and advocacy.
