This document was prepared to support school districts in the process of implementing Oregon administrative regulations regarding gifted student education. Elements are listed that should be included in school district policies relating to the education of gifted students. A step-by-step program planning outline is suggested, from establishing a steering committee to evaluating the program. Guidelines are offered for developing administrative support for the gifted education program and for coordinating the program within the district structure and school schedule. The guide also discusses program alternatives, program budget, program resources (both within and out of the district), and program evaluation. An appendix contains a sample program philosophy, identification policy, appeals procedure, list of program and service options, procedures for handling complaints, and parent notification form.
