ESSA is the new Federal Every Student Succeeds Act and there are provisions for identification and services to gifted students. ESSA is the replacement for the No Child Left Behind Act.
The Colorado Department of Education's Office of Gifted Education has sent CAGT / CO Assn for Gifted & Talented their ESSA Talking Points. The ESSA document is informational, it is not guidance. The final regulations just came out and CDE is in the development of the State Plan and specific guidance for local districts. They want to share this with our members as it may be of interest to many of you. Again this is just an informational document.
