Georgia Gifted Education Program
The Georgia Department of Education’s Gifted Program is funded by the State of Georgia. In Georgia, a gifted education student is defined as one who demonstrates a high degree of intellectual and/or creative ability(ies), exhibits an exceptionally high degree of motivation, and/or excels in specific academic fields, and who needs special instruction and/or special ancillary services to achieve at levels commensurate with his or her ability(ies).
Students identified as gifted and whose participation has received parental consent shall receive at least five segments per week (or the
yearly equivalent) of gifted education services, using one of the approved models described in Appendix A of the Georgia Department of Education Resource Manual for Gifted Education Services.
