Talented and Gifted Program
Farmington View’s Talented and Gifted (TAG) Program
The goal of Talented and Gifted (TAG) programming is to make certain K-12 students consistently have learning opportunities that are challenging, systematic and continuous based on learning profile, readiness and student interest.
Student learning experiences include a broad range of opportunities that pushes a student to their next level of challenge and allows them to develop their talents. TAG programming may occur in the classroom, or in other settings. TAG programming is determined by ongoing evaluation and assessment of individual student needs.
The Talented and Gifted Program (TAG) was specifically created to academically challenge students who demonstrate gifted behavior and learning potential. The goals of the program are to challenge students' cognitive, affective, creative and leadership abilities within an academic subject or an area outside of the classroom curriculum. In addition to the standard core curriculum offered at Farmington View Elementary, TAG students will also be able to participate in extracurricular TAG activities.
Services offered for Talented and Gifted (TAG) Students
Parents are welcome to refer their child for services designed for students identified as talented and gifted. Students who score at or above the 97th percentile on a nationally standardized test of overall reading or math or on a mental abilities test, and have other confirming evidence that they learn at a rapid rate and advanced level, are identified as TAG students. With parent and student input, individual plans are made to adjust the rate and level of the student’s instruction to meet their specific needs. These plans are referred to as Personal Educational Plans (PEP).
If you think that your child may qualify for TAG services, and want information about the referral and identification process, please contact Lisa Pfister, TAG facilitator, at 503-844-1735, X6063.
