What Are Your Rights as a Parent of a Gifted Child?
Irvine, David J.
This paper discusses specific rights of gifted students and their parents under the laws of New York State. The following areas are covered: Chapter 740 of the Laws of 1982 (which states that if a district accepts State funds for gifted programs, it must provide services to gifted pupils); a provision under Chapter 53 of the Laws of 1980 which requires screening for giftedness upon entry into a New York public school; administrative options for serving the gifted (such as eighth grade acceleration and credit through examination); and the Regents' Bill of Rights for Children (which includes one statement asserting a child's right to an education appropriate for his/her individual needs).
