Talanted and Gifted (TAG) Program Overview
We identify Talented and Gifted students with regard to intellectual and measures of math and reading achievements for students performing at the 97% tile or better. We also look at multiple measures in order to assess potential when a student is within the standard error of measurement of meeting the 97% tile.
Each identified student has a personalized educational plan developed to meet their rate and level of instruction. These plans are based on the needs, interests of the students and incorporate consideration of multiple options from each school sites' pyramid of services. We consider both acceleration and enrichment options.
Parents have rights with regard to identification, participation, appeals and complaints. While parents can choose from the options, they cannot require them. In the best interests of each child, the plan is a collaborative effort of the student, teacher and parent. Each school site has a part-time or extended contract TAG facilitator to help support the student, teachers and parents.
