In 1981, Oklahoma became the seventeenth state to mandate educational services for students identified as gifted and talented.  This was done through the enactment of Title 70 O.S. Sections 1210.301-307 (Senate Bill 214).  Oklahoma’s funding comes through the state aid formula and is a weight of .34 for each student identified and served in gifted and talented education.
