Gifted & Talented Enrichment Program

On January 13, 2020, Governor Phil Murphy signed into law A4710, the Strengthening Gifted and Talented Education Act.  The Act establishes school district responsibilities in educating gifted and talented students and requires that a coordinator for gifted and talented servicers be appointed at the state level.  A4710

Gifted & Talented is defined by the current New Jersey Administrative Code and the United States Department of Education (1993) as follows:

Students who are gifted and talented as those students who possess or demonstrate high levels of ability in one or more content areas when compared to their chronological peers in the local district and who require modification of their educational program if they are to achieve in accordance with their capabilities.   - N.J.A.C. 6A:8-1.3

Children and youth with outstanding talent who perform or show the potential for performing at remarkably high levels of accomplishment when compared with others of their age, experience or environment.   - U.S. Department of Education, 1993
