Office of High Ability Education
The Office of High Ability Education administers grants that support school corporations in the development of local programs and services for high ability students and provides resources, workshops, and materials suited to the needs of the high ability population.
Effective July 1, 2007, Indiana schools shall identify students with high ability in the general intellectual and specific academic domains and provide them with appropriately differentiated curriculum and instruction in core content areas, K-12 (refer to IC- 20-36-2-2).
The Indiana Code defines a student with high abilities as one who:
- Performs at, or shows the potential for performing at, an outstanding level of accomplishment in at least one domain when compared to other students of the same age, experience, or environment; and:
- Is characterized by exceptional gifts, talents, motivation, or interests (IC 20-36-1-3).
