Do you know a child who demonstrates these characteristics?
What does it mean to be identified as TAG?
Purpose: TAG serves students who, when compared with others of their age/grade level, require learning experiences beyond the standard curriculum. TAG programs seek to provide an educational experience at the student's rate and level of learning.
Referral: Students may be referred for TAG identification and testing by a teacher, parent, or they may refer themselves. In addition, they may be automatically identified through standardized state test scores.
Identification: Oregon students qualify for TAG when they are in the top 3% on any nationally normed test of achievement or aptitude and there is additional evidence suggesting high ability. A committee in each building identifies students for TAG. Parents have a right to appeal this decision.
Programs and Services: The curriculum and instruction provided to identified TAG students must address their accelerated rate of learning and their advanced level of learning as determined by assessments.
