Welcome to the Gifted and Talented Education Home Page!

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 1210.301-308.  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.
