  • Student Success Act: Your Voice Is Needed NOW

     As Oregon makes huge investments in school with the Student Success Act, it is imperative that our voice is heard. Because RGMS is a higher-income school, we receive no equity funding, no intervention resources, and have huge class sizes. We also receive very little TAG funding even though our student body is 32% TAG. Please make your voice be heard by filling out the district survey NOW. See the Read More link below. Thank you.

The TAG nomination form for new identification is here. Nomination forms are due completely filled out by November 26th. The slideshow we will present is is here.

    TAG Nomination
    • Once your child is identified as TAG in PPS, that identification always remains.
    • If your child scored in the 95th percentile or above on last year’s Smarter Balanced math or reading test, TAG identification will be automatic and begin the next school year, but you MUST fill out and submit the nomination form by November 26. There is a score converter on the RGMS TAG webpage. The PPS TAG Department will send out notice to families that have eligible students.
    • Students new to PPS may be considered for identification through alternate tests from last year. Those can be submitted with the TAG nomination form.
    • Students that are nominated for Intellectual Giftedness will take a standardized test later in the year.
    • TAG identification is made in the mid-winter for the following year.
