Florida Association for the Gifted

Welcome

Our Mission

The mission of FLAG is to connect and empower educators and parents who promote and support educationally sound programs for gifted students through awareness, advocacy, and action.

BREAKING NEWS

There is a new state rule taking effect on 2/20/17:  6A-6.0334 FAC, titled "IEPs and EPs for Transferring Exceptional Students," now allows gifted students who transfer into Florida from other states to be identified as gifted in Florida without having to meet additional eligibility requirements if they were already identified as gifted under the rules for identification in the sending state. The Florida Department of Education has confirmed that the new version of the rule does not require a Florida gifted evaluation if the student meets the specific guidelines in the rule. In fact, the rule specifically states that "Students who transfer with gifted eligibility from another state do not need to meet the requirements of Rule 6A-6.03019, F.A.C., for continued services" (section 4). 

This is a win for gifted students in the great state of Florida, and everywhere.
