Program and Service Options
Students who are identified as either Academically Talented or Intellectually Gifted are eligible for Medford School District’s TAG Program. After being identified based on specific criteria developed by the state, TAG students are placed in a cluster program (when available) under the supervision of the classroom teacher. Here they will receive special guidance to fulfill their potential, through compaction and/or acceleration of the curriculum, as well as enriching activities. These students learn at a faster rate and at a more sophisticated level. Many TAG students have creative and energetic ideas but lack some of the necessary skills to develop projects that measure up to a high level of competence. The TAG Program is designed to fit these needs.
The Medford School District complies with the Oregon Talented and Gifted (TAG) Education Act and its administrative rules. These rules apply to all eligible students in our school.
