This report provides information on gifted and talented education in Alaska, based on a survey of 154 teachers and 728 parents in 41 of 54 school districts. The report describes student eligibility, service availability, curriculum and administrative models, teacher training, parent satisfaction, and service evaluation. The report considers specific issues such as evaluation criteria used in placement decisions, the effects of independent program development by individual school districts, variables influencing participation, service models used, number of students per content area, the impact of district size on course offerings, teacher preparation, and parent satisfaction by student age and enrollment time. The report concludes that a statewide policy is needed to equitably deliver appropriate services to gifted and talented students. (JDD)
