62 p. 

Presented is a proposal for a 3-year program for an estimated 122 to 203 gifted and talented students in public and parochial Huron, South Dakota, schools, to be funded through the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title III. Outlined to justify the proposal are plans to develop identification procedures, a differentiated curriculum, inservice teacher training, and information dissemination; existent advantages such as modular scheduling in three schools; and proof of a unique program given by a plan to develop a guide for a five-component model suitable for use by other schools. Listed are persons and procedures associated with the planning process. Among program components and procedures summarized are national criteria for identification of gifted students and local criteria such as IQ scores of at least 120 on the Otis Lennon Mental Ability Test; gradual program expansion from grades 4, 7, and 10 in the first year to grades 4 through 12 in the third year; and program plans for professional staff (such as a psychologist), facilities, instructional materials, a procedural guide for teachers, inservice training, evaluation, a timetable for needs assessment, and selection procedures. Other program aspects include student activities listed in terms of an experience program, production of a visible product, problem solving and talent sharing; and objectives for students, parents, and adults in the community. Summarized are strategies for evaluation, public management (including a planning chart), and financial effort. Also given are job descriptions, selection forms and letters. Included in front matter is a statistical summary of the program. (MC)
