What is an EP? - An EP (Educational Plan) is a written plan for each student who is identified as eligible for gifted services. It describes the special educational needs of the student related to his or her areas of giftedness. It also identifies the services that will be provided by the school. Parents are partners with school district personnel in developing and revising the EP for their child.
Developing your child’s EP is a wonderful opportunity to discuss your child’s unique gifted needs with the staff that will be educating your child, while creating the legal document (EP) designed to make sure your child’s individual educational needs are met.
