Priority will be given to teachers who are currently teaching gifted students. Enrollment is limited to 25 participants.

Credits earned through this program may not be used for college or university credit. It will be the responsibility of the participant to verify with their local staff development office and/or the FLDOE certification office, any additional certification requirements.
