Agenda Item Summary: The purpose of this brief is to provide the most recent information to the School Board regarding Talented and Gifted (TAG) screening information for the 2022-2023 school year, enrollment information for Honors, Dual Enrollment, and Advanced Placement at the high school level using a preliminary level of analysis. In addition, the Department of Accountability and Research will provide a more robust examination of the data within the Fall/Winter of 2023-2024 TAG Indicator report. Also, this document will provide the School Board with the TAG indicators report developed in the Fall/Winter of 2022-2023 based on student data from 2021-2022.
Background: As a division aiming to keep equity and high-quality instructional access a top priority, ACPS must take courageous steps to ensure the use of culturally, linguistically, and economically unbiased identification procedures and instructional services. Although ACPS is still working under the 2012-2017 Local Plan for Gifted, the TAG office has adapted the screening processes to meet ACPS’ Focus Areas and Budget Priorities in the gifted and equitable presentation categories. This year, the TAG office expanded automatic screening referrals for Specific Academic Aptitude (SAA) and General Intellectual Aptitude (GIA) services to include all Young Scholars services and implemented an oversight screening committee during each screening process.
Recommendation: The Interim Superintendent recommends that the School Board review the information in this brief.
