NEW STANDARDS

The State of Ohio Gifted Operating Standards have been revised to recognize the importance of supporting professional development for general education classroom teachers.
The requirements for earning an Educator Gifted Academy certificate include coursework in the areas of nature and needs and curriculum and instruction of and for gifted students.
To align with these standards and provide opportunities for Central Ohio teachers, the ESC of Central Ohio is excited to announce Gifted Academy.

ABOUT GIFTED ACADEMY

The Gifted Academy consists of two 30-hour courses which comply with the revised requirements.
For each course, graduates will receive an Educator Gifted Academy certificate, and by adding the course to their IPDP, become qualified service providers for gifted students.
Facilitators of this course have gifted endorsement and direct teaching experience.

Ashland University graduate credit will also be available for an additional fee.
