GIFTED CHILD EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM
The Tannehill Board of Education recognizes that educational programs are necessary for gifted children as defined in Oklahoma Statutes Section 1210.307 of Title 70.
Therefore, it is the policy of the board of education to cooperate fully with the State Department of Education in identifying gifted and talented children and in developing appropriate educational programs.
Children in this district will be considered for placement in the program in accordance with scores on standardized achievement and intelligence tests, records, and recommendations of teachers and parents.
Children identified as gifted and talented will be offered gifted and talented educational programs directly through the facilities of this district.
Student participation in extracurricular activities shall be dependent upon the maintenance of minimum academic standards established by the board, the student's individual ability in the extracurricular activity, and such other factors as may be determined by the administration.
The superintendent is directed to develop and implement regulations that support this policy.
