• "Is there a definition for 'gifted'?"

    Posted by SHANNON BRACKEEN on 1/11/2013

    Yes. The current federal definition of gifted students was originally developed in the 1972Marland Report to Congress, and has been modified several times since then. The current definition, which is located in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, is

    Students, children, or youth who give evidence of high achievement capability in areas such as intellectual, creative, artistic, or leadership capacity, or in specific academic fields, and who need services and activities not ordinarily provided by the school in order to fully develop those capabilities
     

    Note: States and districts are not required to use the federal definition, although many states base their definitions on the federal definition.
