Talented and Gifted (TAG) Education

Talented and Gifted Education is “needs-based” instructional programming for which a student should be identified to receive services. The information provided here is designed to support educators and parents to define the need for services and to support TAG identified students in their learning needs.

On March 18, 2021, The State Board of Education adopted the temporary rule “TAG Identification 581-022-0104 State Standards for the 2020-21 School Year.” The temporary rule waives TAG identification for the 2020-21 school year.
