Resources for GT Families

Gifted Education Family Network

Families of GT students statewide are invited to join a new network for Texas GT families!

The Gifted Education Family Network (GEFN) is a new opportunity for GT families to receive support, information, and connections with other families, facilitating positive advocacy for Texas GT programs, GT funding, and excellence in gifted education. GEFN is committed to equity and diversity in gifted education.  We support the annual GT Parent Conference at the Baylor Center for Gifted Education and Talent Development and other low-cost opportunities for parent engagement across the state. 

GT parents from all regions of Texas are invited to join us for free, to subscribe to our e-mail news (https://giftededucationfamilynetwork.org/subscribe/), to explore our website, and to follow us on social media (please visit our site for Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram links: https://giftededucationfamilynetwork.org/). 

ESC and District GT Coordinators:  To ensure access for families in all income levels, membership in GEFN is free.  Please consider encouraging district GT educators to share information about GEFN with GT parents in your area (aligns with State Plan section 6.4: “The opportunity to participate in a parent association and/or gifted/talented advocacy groups is provided to parents and community members”).  If you would like us to promote a low-cost event for GT parents in your area, or if we can provide other assistance, please contact our leadership team at giftededucationfamilynetwork@gmail.com.
