  • It is the responsibility of TAG teachers, classroom teachers, support staff, parents, students and administration to work collaboratively to ensure the needs of gifted learners are met.
  • Gifted learners need opportunities to explore their passions and interests in order to develop their talents, promote self-direction and encourage life-long learning.
  • Talented & Gifted Programming is best provided through a flexible framework in order to meet the unique cognitive and affective needs of gifted learners.
  • Gifted learners require qualitatively differentiated curriculum and instruction that includes, but is not limited to, increased rigor, appropriate pacing and/or acceleration.
  • A comprehensive identification system is integral to determining a gifted learner’s programming.
