1. § 1. As part of its current comprehensive review of its Regulations Governing Educational Services for Gifted Students (8VAC20-40-10 et seq.), the Board of Education shall consider revisions to the process of screening and identifying students for eligibility for gifted and talented programs and referring students to such programs to improve the identification of student populations that are underrepresented in such programs, including economically disadvantaged students, English language learner students, and students with disabilities. The Board of Education shall also consider revisions to the data collection requirements of the annual report required by such regulations to better inform equitable screening and identification for and access to gifted and talented programs for student populations that are underrepresented in such programs.
