It is the belief of the Parent & Community Network that the families of gifted students and resources within their communities are a crucial part of the growth of gifted individuals. To enhance parent effectiveness and to network community resources are major goals of this Network. More specifically, this Network will strive to meet the needs of gifted individuals by: 1) building partnerships with families, schools, businesses, industries, civic and service groups, helping professionals, and other communities; 2) facilitating education, assistance, and support for families of the gifted; 3) locating, developing, and disseminating relevant resources, programs, and materials; 4) assisting educators in working with gifted students, parents, families, and communities; 5) increasing public recognition of and support for the needs of the gifted; 6) linking gifted individuals with other gifted individuals in the wider community; 7) encouraging and assisting the development of local and state organizations to support gifted education; and 8) linking with other Networks and organizations to help fulfill common goals.
