Comments
WI districts are already mandated to identify and serve "gifted and talented pupils" (S.118.35; S.121.02(1)(t); Rule 8.01(2)(t)2). Much data in this bill is already collected for state or fed OCR. DPI registered "for information only." See attached.

Comments
While we support robust gifted and talented programs, this bill includes new unfunded mandates (e.g., additional reporting requirements and audits). Despite recent state budget increases for G&T, these programs are still critically underfunded in WI
