Gifted Education Mandates, by state or province

collected by Carolyn K. director, Hoagies' Gifted Education Page

Which U.S. states and other countries have gifted education mandates? Which mandate IEP's for our gifted children? Does my state offer an early college entrance option? Where can I get more information on the laws in my state or province? This table answers those basic Gifted Education questions, as best we know...

This page, like state laws, is constantly changing, and I need your help. If you know the current answers to these questions for your state or province, or any area outside the U.S. or Canada, please contact me at the address above. Thanks!

Read NAGC's Gifted by State.  See Gifted Organizations for links to your own state or province gifted association.

For current and detailed information on US State mandates governing gifted education, please visit GT-CyberSource Gifted Education Policies.
