The Oregon City School District is committed to an educational program that recognizes, identifies, and serves the unique needs and interests of talented and gifted students in all grade levels, K-12. In compliance with the State of Oregon TAG mandate, students are identified as academically talented if they score 97% or higher on a nationally standardized test of reading or math or intellectually gifted if they score 97% or higher on a nationally standardized test of mental ability.

A student may be identified as TAG in reading, math, intellectual or a combination of these. No single test shall be the sole criteria for determination. Classroom teachers differentiate instruction to address each TAG student’s level of learning and accelerated rate of learning.

Parental Rights

If your student has been identified as Talented and Gifted based on criteria set by the OARs, you have rights as parents of a talented and gifted student. In carrying out the requirements of OAR 581-022-1320, the school district:

  • informs parents at the time of the identification of the child of the programs and services available.


  • provides an opportunity for parents to provide input to and discuss with the district the programs and services to be received by their child.


  • notifies parents of the right to request, at any time, the withdrawal of their child from programs and services provided under OAR 581-022-1330.


  • informs parents of their right to file a complaint under OAR 581-022-1940.
