Gifted By State

US Map with pushpins.jpgBecause the federal government does not provide guidance or have requirements for gifted services, students encounter a range of services from state to state and even district to district. NAGC and the Council of State Directors of Programs for the Gifted (CSDPG) conduct a biennial survey of how states regulate and support programs for advanced students  called State of the States in Gifted Education.

Read state-by-state data on gifted education policy and practice in the State of the States in Gifted Education (2014-2015).  The policy and practice information provided for each state (below) is taken from the State of the States report.
 

NAGC also asks universities to share information about what they provide advanced students and their families. Below are compilations of some of their responses.

Visit the NAGC State Affiliate Resource Center for the latest news and info for state gifted associations.
