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:
- 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;
- 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
- The District must provide a rationale explaining why the team rejected the other option and the data used by the District to reject it.
