The revised NORA directs Districts to give clarification to the services provided for a gifted student and why the recommendations are the most appropriate.  There are three (3) sections on the new form that require more detail.  They are:

  1. Educational placement for a gifted student falls into one of three categories: enrichment, acceleration, or a combination of the two.  Districts will identify the type(s) of service and the content area/grade level that the support will supplement;
  2. When making a recommendation, the District needs to provide a rationale explaining why that support was recommended and the data used by the District to support it; and
  3. The District must provide a rationale explaining why the team rejected the other option and the data used by the District to reject it.
