Talented and Gifted
The Oregon City School District is committed to an educational program that recognizes, identifies, and serves the unique needs and interests of talented and gifted students in all grade levels, K-12. In compliance with the State of Oregon TAG mandate, students are identified as academically talented if they score 97% or higher on a nationally standardized test of reading or math or intellectually gifted if they score 97% or higher on a nationally standardized test of mental ability.
A student may be identified as TAG in reading, math, intellectual or a combination of these. No single test shall be the sole criteria for determination. Classroom teachers differentiate instruction to address each TAG student’s level of learning and accelerated rate of learning.
The Office for Talented and Gifted Education seeks parents and/or community volunteers to coach and supervise the following clubs:
- Chess Club
- Scrabble Club
- Lego Robotics Team
- Destination Imagination Team
- Junior Great Books
- Creative Writing Club
- Art Club
If you are interested and available to coach or supervise a student club, please contact your child's principal or school TAG Coordinator for more information.
