CDE was awarded the federal Jacob K. Javits Grant in 2005 for its "Take Five: Unfolding Gifted Programming" project.

This grant provides the funding for two state initiatives:

Modules: Addressing the Needs of Gifted Learners
Eight modules were developed during the three-year grant period to increase capacity of educators to meet the instructional needs of gifted learners. Each module will be offered in both online and traditional kit formats.

Project U-Stars
Provides teacher training and supplemental science materials at treatment school sites in Colorado. Project U-STARS supports teachers in the early recognition and nurturing of potential in children from economically disadvantaged and/or culturally diverse families and children with disabilities in order to improve achievement and provide access to advanced educational opportunities.
