Talented and Gifted Program

  • Hello Wonderful Faubion Parents,

    There have been some changes to TAG in Portland Public Schools.  First of all identification scores for "TAG Potential" have changed.  In the past if your child scored between the 95th and 96th percentile, they were considered TAG Potential.  This year the TAG office has changed criterion score to between 85th percentile -  96th percentile.   If your child has been tested in the past and you would like them tested again under the new criterion, please let your child's teacher know. 

    To have your child tested, you need to fill out an IDPF and sign permission for testing.  These IDPF's are do to me Monday, November 2nd.  Due to new policies with the TAG office, NO LATE IDPF's WILL BE ACCEPTED. 

    Again if you would like your child tested, please contact their teacher.  Parent Teacher Conferences are coming up on November 9 and November 10, this is a perfect time to discuss TAG testing and fill out IDPF's with your child's teacher.  If your child is already identified, you do not need to worry about any further testing. 

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me at jmakara@pps.net

    Thank you 

    Jamie Makara
