by Busbee, Kelli Tauzier, Ed.D., Southeastern Louisiana University, 2010, 93; 3482190
Abstract (Summary)

Each school system throughout the United States has the option of how to set up their gifted program. The concern is whether or not leaders in each school system have correctly placed students in a program that is most advantageous to the student’s overall academic career. This evaluation was based on one school system’s gifted program as it currently stands and whether or not this school system met the goals set forth by the program as well as show having met the individual needs of the students that are currently in the program. This evaluation also described the differences between gifted enrichment programs and gifted academic programs.

This evaluation compared the structure of gifted programs across the state of Louisiana. In each district, school leaders have the ability to create programs that are best suited to their student’s individual needs. A comparison was made to show the differences in gifted approaches across the state.
