KAGE has set up a LISTSERV with news of issues specific to gifted education in Kentucky, including legislative action, conferences, workshops, scholarships, and other noteworthy events.

If you have any questions about the KAGE LISTSERV, call the KAGE office at 270.745.7301, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
