Gifted Programming Elements: 

The Exceptional Children’s Educational Act (ECEA) is Colorado’s primary law with requirements for the implementation of specific elements and procedures for gifted education.  The State Board of Education is responsible for promulgating rules that local districts use to follow Colorado education laws.  Administrative Units (AUs) oversee and provide educational services to gifted students and professional development opportunities for educators.  AU is defined as a school district, a board of cooperative services (BOCES), or the state Charter School Institute.  ECEA Rules guide AUs in developing provisions for the implementation of the gifted program plan.  Click the links below to access information for each of the thirteen programming elements.

*Legislation allows AUs to determine if Early Access is provided as a gifted programming option.
