State Goal for Gifted Students
Students who participate in services designed for gifted students will demonstrate skills in self-directed
learning, thinking, research, and communication as evidenced by the development of innovative
products and performances that are advanced in relation to students of similar age, experience,
or environment and reflect individuality and creativity. High school graduates who have participated
in services for gifted students will have produced products and performances of professional
quality as part of their program services.
