Summary: Virginia Regulations Governing Educational Services for Gifted Students (Section 8VAC20-40-60 8VAC20-40-60) state that each school board must approve a comprehensive plan for the education of the gifted and it identifies the components that must be included in that plan.

For the past year gifted education specialists, in collaboration with parents on the Quest Advisory Committee, have developed a six-year plan that has the division in compliance with the regulations and reflects current best practices in the field.

Ms. Beverly Catlin, Coordinator of Instruction, and Dr. Joshua Greenhoe, chair of the Quest Advisory Committee, will present the plan.

Attached is the new Local Plan for the Education of the Gifted.
