Gifted & Talented Education Requirements

Gifted Education in Montana Rule and Law

In the School Laws of Montana, MCAA 20-7-901, high ability/high potential students are defined as children with capabilities that "require differentiated educational programs beyond those normally offered in public schools in order to fully achieve their potential contribution to self and society." Montana's School Accreditation Standards require each school district to provide educational services to high ability/high potential students commensurate with their needs as outlined in a comprehensive district framework for gifted education.
