Do not adapt these regulations!

Please do not adopt the new resolution.  It is important for the divisions to submit their plans to the DOE rather than just to their own school boards.  The state needs to have regulatory and supervisory powers over the plans so all students receive the same level of services through the commonwealth.  There also needs to be accountability for the funding for gifted students
