The Exceptional Childrenís Educational Act (ECEA) requires all school districts in Colorado to identify and serve students between ages five and twenty-one, whose aptitude or competencies are exceptional or developmentally advanced and require special provisions to meet their educational programming needs.
In order to appropriately identify these students, the district works in compliance with the Colorado Department of Education to implement a specific process which uses both quantitative and qualitative data and a body of evidence to determine eligibility and create Advanced Learning Plans (ALP) for students who qualify.
