Gifted & Talented in Visual & Performing Arts

As part of the establishment of gifted and talented programs, opportunities must be provided for students with exceptional abilities in the visual and performing arts in each district. The Maine Learning Results serves as a guide to each school for developing comprehensive and sequential standards-based curricula for student learning in all eight content areas. Read Chapter 104, Education Programs for Gifted and Talented Children, for more information.

The Maine Department of Education has created the following resource to serve as a guide when schools are designing a program. How schools craft the program remains entirely a local decision. The resource, available in two formats, includes general information, highlights of Chapter 104, frequently asked questions and more.
