FLORIDA ASSOCIATION FOR THE GIFTED
The Department of Education serves as the single repository of education data from school districts, state and community colleges, universities, and independent postsecondary institutions - allowing us to track student performance over time and across varying education sectors.
The mission of the Florida Gifted Network (FGN) is to educate the public on the needs of gifted learners and effectively advocate for issues that affect the rights of of these exceptional students and the services they receive. FGN, formerly PALS, is a non-profit Florida organization founded in 1987. FGN focuses on providing resources, networking and advocacy.
Serving Brevard, Seminole, Orange, Osceola, Lake, Polk, Sumter, Citrus, Hernando, Pasco, Pinellas and Hillsborough counties, Region 3's Facebook page is a clearinghouse for local events, online seminars, book releases and learning opportunities.

Mid Florida Gifted Consortium is a private Facebook group for parents of gifted learners from the Central Florida / I-4 Corridor. Offering resources, BTDT advice and meetups, MFGC hopes to support families through connection, opportunity and advocacy. This group is private and is for families only. Members can feel free to share stories and ask for frank advice. MFGC hopes to offer a safe space for families to connect and grow.
H.A.T.S. (High Achieving Talented Students) is specially designed for younger students (1st-6th graders) who are academically directed. We provide year-round academic enrichment support for gifted, high-achieving and academically accelerated students. Students K-12th who have achieved scores at or above the 95% on a nationally normed standardized test, who participate in a gifted program, or who are recommended by an educator are invited to participate in our H.A.T.S. programming.
COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Each Broward County Public School must develop and implement a comprehensive plan to meet the needs of their gifted students as outlined in the Broward County Public Schools Procedural Guide for Gifted Education.
Services are provided in the core content areas, depending on students’ needs. Gifted services, however, are not limited to the curriculum and learning environment. Other services must be provided based on the individual needs of the student.
BCPS also hosts an annual Gifted & Talented Symposium which is one of the largest gatherings of gifted educators and families in the State of Florida.
