Gifted and Talented

The Maine Department of Education is committed to meeting the needs of all learners, as outlined in our strategic plan.  We provide reimbursement to school districts for certain approved costs that support locally-developed “gifted and talented” programs and provide professional development opportunities and technical assistance to school districts in instructional practices such as differentiation, innovative pathways, and other supports for meeting the diverse needs of Maine’s learners.
