Question: What's the scoop on identifying and serving twice-exceptional homeschooled TAG students?
By Margaret DeLacy, Ph.D.
Over the past few months, the Directors of the Oregon Association for Talented and Gifted have spent considerable time and effort in overhauling the structure and philosophy of our organization.
OATAG was created in the 1980's. Since that time society has evolved considerably. Social media and the internet now play prominent roles in the lives of most, if not all, Oregonians. It was time for OATAG to evolve and change, and evolve and change we did. The foundation for this change was a complete and total overhaul of the bylaws, which were edited and revised to reflect the changing priorities of twenty-first century families.
There are many new and exciting things to expect in the coming months as OATAG implements this new vision. Here is a partial list of those changes:
OATAG is actively looking for individuals to help us with many conferences around the state. It's really easy to set up, no experience and only minimal effort required. For more information please click below.
