A new report suggests ways states and districts can better serve gifted students even without spending additional money.

The report by the National Association for Gifted Children suggests educators could collect and review existing achievement data for gifted and high-performing students.

Of the 44 states responding to the group's survey, however, 14 collect no such data.

Few states also have policies in place to enable schools to undertake another low-cost option: accelerating students, or allowing them to skip grades. Early kindergarten entry, another inexpensive idea, is prohibited by 10 states.
