Comprehensive Program Plan

A Program Plan is a concisely written description of the policy and methods by which an administrative unit identifies and programs for gifted student education. The elements that must be addressed in a Program Plan are based upon ECEA statute and criteria established by Rules promulgated by the State Board of Education and any criteria for accreditation (22-20-104.5). Rules support national standards and best practices in gifted education. A Program Plan includes a brief description of how an administrative unit will improve in any one or more element of the Plan during the three year plan cycle.

The following resources support the Comprehensive Program Plan Development. 

Note:  The Comprehensive Program Plan is completed in the Data Management System and is due October 15, 2016.
