DOE Press Release: Chancellor Klein Proposes Improvements to Gifted and Talented Education

Schools Chancellor Joel I. Klein today proposed improvements to New York City’s gifted and talented education programs. Under the proposal, the Department of Education (DOE) will expand access to gifted programs and create a single, rigorous standard—based on national norms—for “giftedness.” Under the proposed plan, admissions to gifted programs would be based on the results of two comprehensive assessments that public school students would, for the first time, take at their school sites rather than at central testing locations. Students in non-public schools will continue to be tested by DOE staff at specified locations on weekends.

Highlights of the plan are as follows:

City’s Plan To Boost Access to Gifted and Talented Programs

First-Ever Citywide Admission Standard To Bring Greater Equity, Rigor to Self-Contained Programs in Grades K-3

All Students Who Meet Standard Would Be Guaranteed a Seat in a Gifted and Talented Program

Please click here for more details about the Chancellor's plans. There will be public hearings in each of the five boroughs for discussion of the plan. The details for this are:

The DOE will hold public hearings in all five boroughs on its gifted and talented education proposal. The schedule for each hearing is as follows:

6:00 p.m. - Doors open. Speaker signup begins.
6:30 p.m. - Hearing begins with presentation of the proposal.
6:45 p.m. - Public comment. Speakers will be called in the order in which they signed up. Each speaker will have three minutes to make a comment or ask a question. Questions should be short enough to allow for an answer within the three minute allotment. The time limit will be strictly enforced so that as many people as possible have a chance to speak.
8:30 p.m. - Hearing concludes.

Members of the public can also submit comments through November 25 via e-mail (to or via phone (call (212) 374-5219).
