Broad Based Planning Committee (BBPC)/High Ability Task Force

Indiana Administrative Code 511 requires that the Broad-Based Planning Committee (BBPC) includes diverse representation from the following groups:

  • Educators
  • Parents
  • Students
  • Community members
  • Other stakeholder groups  

The function of the High Ability Task Force/BBPC is to design and monitor the continuous development and implementation of the levels of services program for high ability students. (511 IAC 6-9.1-2, Section 2, Part (e)).

Since the development of a high ability program more than 30 years ago, the MCCSC has continuously maintained a Broad-Based Planning Committee that has served to provide guidance to the program and to support the Coordinator of High Ability Education. New state legislation in the area of high ability education went into effect in July 2007.  Indiana Code for High Ability Education states that "the school corporation shall develop and periodically update a level of services program to provide educational opportunities to encourage high ability students to reach the highest possible level at every stage of development."  In the fall of 2007, the High Ability Task Force was established and charged with the responsibility of developing and implementing a comprehensive K-12 program of services for all high ability students.  This K-12 continuum of services is based on best practices, includes professional development and parent and student support, and is reevaluated and updated regularly.
