The Gresham-Barlow School District is committed to an educations program that recognizes, identifies and serves the unique needs of talented and gifted students.†
Eligibility for TAG services follows the Oregon Department of Educationís guidelines, which identifies students as intellectually gifted or talented in math or reading based on performance at the 97th percentile, or top 3% on a nationally standardized test. Additional evidence based on observation, work samples, parent and student input is also part of determining eligibility for TAG. Gresham-Barlow utilizes the Smarter Balanced assessment to determine students with academic talents. In addition, in the winter, all students in grade 2 are screened for intellectual giftedness using the CogAT 7 screener assessment. Parents may also individually nominate their child by contacting their child's teacher.†
Once a student is identified, a TAG Learning Plan is developed with input from the parent, the teacher and the student. This plan addresses the individual studentís rate and level of learning. The TAG Learning Plan is shared with parents at Fall Conferences.†
Services for students identified as talented and gifted will vary depending on the learning needs of the individual student. Differentiated instruction in the classroom is the primary model used. Within the differentiated instruction model, strategies such as tiered assignments, curriculum compacting, flexible grouping, research projects and acceleration may be utilized. Students will also have the opportunities to work with other TAG students
