It is not uncommon to hear the question asked, “What are the quality indicators for comprehensive programming for highly capable students?” Download the following NAGC Pre-K-Grade 12 Gifted Programming Standards (2010) and have your team consider this broad question while examining what these standards recommend.
(Access the Gifted Programming Standards under the Resource section in Module 1 on our website.) Use these questions to guide your thinking:
1.In examining the standards, how do your school district’s standards compare?
2.In assessing your implementation of these standards, what are your strengths? Areas for improvement?
3.Which student outcomes are currently addressed through the services you provide?
4.What action plans might you consider taking?
