october 2009 i am pleased to support the state board of education s sboe s recent approval of a revised texas state plan for the education of gifted/talented students state plan the 2009 version of this document provides requirements for and guidance to districts as they meet the unique needs of an important special population in texas the texas education code tec requires that the sboe periodically update a state plan for the education of gifted/talented g/t students to guide school districts in establishing and improving services for identified students tec §29.123 the sboe approved the updated language in september 2009 while the 2009 state plan does not include any new requirements for districts it does clarify requirements so that districts may more easily understand and meet them it also makes use of new language and new recommendations which closely correspond to current research regarding best practices for g/t services one of the additions to the state plan is the reference to and recommendation of the texas performance standards project tpsp first established through the general appropriations act of the 76th texas legislature the tpsp is now established by tec §39.236 added by house bill 3 81st texas legislature as the primary tool for assessing the effectiveness of gifted services i am pleased to support the tpsp the first assessment program of its kind in the nation for evaluation of g/t services finally as a result of the changes approved by the sboe the 2009 state plan is fully aligned with the tec requiring the responsibility for compliance monitoring of educational programs tec §7.028 through implementing the sboe s newly-approved state plan beginning in school year 2010 2011 texas districts will be better equipped to provide a meaningful and fruitful educational experience for their g/t students robert scott commissioner of education 11
