HM 15 ALLOW SCHOOL ACADEMIC ACCELERATION
HB 354 EXPAND “SCHOOL-AGE PERSON” DEFINITION
This legislation will provide acceleration options and consideration for gifted students to receive social work/transportation/ancillary services, and it includes a twice-exceptional definition for our gifted students who meet the criteria for a disability under federal law. I thank you for your support in providing best practices in education throughout New Mexico.
