Handbook for Implementing a District Gifted Education Plan.
Klawiter, Arlene, Ed.; And Others
This handbook is intended to assist South Dakota school districts in developing and implementing educational programs for gifted students. It is noted that state regulations provide a minimum standard for gifted programs, but do not limit services and leave room for flexibility in planning according to each district's needs. The first section briefly lists characteristics of gifted students and notes the state mandate to provide programming for these students. Requirements in program management are summarized, including responsibilities for program implementation, documentation, funding, staff development, and teacher certification. Guidelines for screening and identification are given next. Curriculum options are briefly addressed, including responsibility for curriculum determination by school districts and delivery models and strategies. Program and student evaluation and parent and community involvement are also briefly considered. A glossary defines 33 terms in gifted education. Twenty-two additional resources are recommended. (DB)
