Agenda Item Summary: The Talented and Gifted Advisory Committee (TAGAC) focused its attention last year on the delivery of services for students in middle school. Members of TAGAC participated in the Honors Review Committee and also reviewed that committee’s final report. The recommendations from that report, if effectively implemented, should improve the rigor of Honors courses for all students wishing to take on more advanced academic work in middle school. However, TAGAC believes strongly that these improvements will still not address the very specific academic, social, and emotional needs of our TAG-identified population while they are in middle school.
Background: After reviewing the TAG services offered in ACPS as well as in neighboring jurisdictions,TAGAC recommended a number of revisions to TAG delivery of services in ACPS middle schools. In proposing the recommendations, TAGAC did not propose changes that have budgetary implications. These recommendations did not require the hiring of additional teachers, only adjustments to the current classroom assignments of the existing teaching staff and student population.
Recommendation: The Superintendent recommends that the School Board review and accept the 2014-15 TAGAC report.
