TAG General Information for Parents
Every year students are considered for Talented and Gifted services in the Beaverton School
District. These services are provided by your child's classroom teacher(s). If you think your
child might qualify, you may wish to complete the Parent Information Form that is available
in our school's office. Completing this form gives our school TAG committee more
information about your child, but it is not required. All qualified students will be considered
regardless of its completion.
Oregon law and District policy define gifted students as those who score at or above the
97th percentile on a standardized, nationally normed test of mental ability and/or academic
achievement. Behavioral, learning, and/or performance information is also considered
before a student is identified for TAG services.
