• Parent Advisory Council (TAGAC)

    Guests are always welcome!

    The TAG Advisory Council (TAGAC) reviews all aspects of the Portland Public Schools' Talented and Gifted programs and makes recommendations to the District with respect to TAG services in Portland Public Schools. Members include parents from all quadrants of the city with students in elementary, middle, and high school. The council seeks parent members that represent the demographics of the students served by the district. Visitors are always welcome. Meetings are held monthly during the school year, usually on the second Wednesday of the month from 6:30-8:00 p.m at district headquarters in the Windows Conference Room. See the current schedule in the sidebar to the right.
