Welcome to the WEB Site for the Oregon Association for Talented And Gifted
The OATAG Mission Statement:
Do you know a child who exhibits these traits?
Then You May Know A Child Who Is Talented & Gifted
What Does It Mean To Be Identified As Talented And Gifted?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.
For More Information contact your school's TAG Coordinator or psychologist or OATAG
