The North Clackamas School District identifies students as
academically talented and gifted in the areas of math and reading. The mission of Talented and Gifted education
is to identify, encourage, and respond to the diverse need of students identified
as TAG by facilitating and or providing differentiated curriculum and
instruction to meet students’ academic rate and level of learning.
The purpose of this instruction is to provide students with
intellectual challenges and methods to extend learning and encourage
exploration, self-discovery, inquiry and perseverance.
Testing for Talented and Gifted Identification done on May 14th, 2016
Thank you very much for bringing your
student to the district TAG testing session Saturday May 14th.
The Nagliari, (NNAT
2), assessment is hand scored and entered into a computerized scoring
system by staff in the Instructional Services Department. We have
begun the scoring process of the assessment and will have them completed by June 6th, 2016.
Sometime during the first two weeks of June, you
will receive an assessment report in the mail letting you know how your
student scored. In order to have the TAG identification, your student
will need to have scored at the 97th percentile or higher. Regardless
of how your student scored, the report will still provide you with
information about your student as a learner. Each student has potential
to learn and grow to great lengths no mater what percentile score he or
School principals will be
notified of their students who scored at the 97th percentile or higher
and will communicate with parent in the fall about continuing the TAG
