GT Standards

National Association for Gifted Children

In 1998, NAGC developed the Pre-K – Grade 12 Gifted Program Standards which were designed to assist school districts in examining the quality of their programming for gifted learners. The NAGC Program Standards detail a framework that include both minimum standards and exemplary standards in seven key areas: Program Design, Program Administration and Management, Student Identification, Curriculum and Instruction, Socio-Emotional Guidance and Counseling, Professional Development, and Program Evaluation. Districts throughout the United States use the standards for both evaluating and improving programs and services.

State Goal for Services of Gifted Students

“Students who participate in services designed for gifted students will demonstrate skills in self-directed learning, thinking, research, and communication as evidenced by the development of innovative products and performances that reflect individuality and creativity and are advanced in relation to students of similar age, experience, or environment. High school graduates who have participated in services for gifted students will have produced products and performances of professional quality as part of their program services.”
