As required by the passage of HB14-1102 last year, the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) is recommending changes to the Rules for the Administration of the Exceptional Children’s Educational Act (ECEA) pertaining to Gifted Education. Administrative rules provide an administrative framework and clarity for schools and districts as they provide services. The Colorado State Board of Education is responsible for approving and implementing such Rules.


CAGT's Legislative Day is held the Thursday after Presidents' Day each February. This year it will be Thursday, February 19, 7:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.; Legislative Day allows students (grades 8 - 12) to learn more about the legislative process. Students may apply for the unique opportunity to shadow a state Legislator for the day. The interaction with students and adults also gives Legislators new insight about this population as they represent Colorado.


Each year the Colorado Association for Gifted and Talented (CAGT) asks the Colorado GT community to share how parents, educators, administrators and others have made a difference in the lives of gifted children by making nominations to the CAGT Leadership Awards program. At the annual conference, CAGT then recognizes individuals who have exemplified leadership in a number of roles. It was an inspiration to hear about the wonderful things that the award winners have done to raise awareness about GT concerns and to support gifted children. In case you missed seeing these awards presented at the conference, here is a little more about these Colorado GT leaders. Their efforts are positive examples for us all!


This year’s CAGT conference theme was The Many Faces of Gifted.  The focus was on the uniqueness of each gifted child. There was so much to learn and participate in at the CAGT conference.  In addition to the wonderful keynote speakers, over eighty breakout sessions were offered.
