Guide for District Service Plans and Fiscal Estimates for Children Who Are Gifted.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Special Education.
This guide has been developed to assist Ohio school districts in completing the requirements of Ohio legislation on the identification and services for children who are gifted. It includes instructions for developing and submitting a service plan for children who are gifted and a fiscal estimate of the plan. The guide corresponds with a Web site and is divided into four parts to help districts choose service delivery options which meet the educational needs of children who are identified as gifted. Each part of the guide includes study questions that lead the district to action steps needed to complete the district's service plan. As the district service planning committee works to develop the service plan, the cost estimates are determined for each service component. Parts 1 and 2 call for district identification information and certification. Part 3 addresses planning committee membership, the district's mission statement, and goals for gifted services. Part 4 addresses screening and assessment for identification, gifted service coordination and supervision, guidance services, staff development, program evaluation, service delivery options serving only children who are gifted, and service delivery options through general education. Appendices include a gifted coordinators service log, written education plans forms, and a glossary. (Contains 13 references.) (CR)
