The Mississippi Department of Education (MDE), Office of Gifted Education Programs, constituted a steering committee in 2002 to begin the process of developing Mississippi Gifted Education Standards that were based upon the national standards published by the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC). The effort was done in collaboration with the Mississippi Association for Gifted Children (MAGC). Members of the steering committee chaired a working committee for each of the seven standards that had been published by NAGC. The committees were comprised of representatives from MDE, MAGC, teachers of the gifted, district administrators, parents, college and universities, and gifted students. PURPOSE: The gifted program standards have been developed for the following purposes: 1. Provide guidance to district personnel in the development and conduct of the local gifted programs, 2. Provide districts with an instrument to be used in the evaluation of the local gifted program so that periodic modifications can be incorporated into the local program to best meet the needs of gifted students, 3. Provide an instrument to be used by MDE personnel when monitoring district gifted programs, and 4. Provide data to personnel within MDE to assist in reviewing gifted program proposals submitted by local districts and determine if proposal approval, conditional approval, or non-approval should be recommended to the State Board of Education (SBE).
