Talented and Gifted (TAG)

    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​BVSD schools provide programming for Talented and Gifted (TAG) students based on their identified needs and in accordance with district identification policy, which is based on a body of evidence​.
    ​A variety of talent development activities are offered to students with strong interests in specific subjects.  Students who demonstrate gifted abilities in academic areas are identified and appropriate learning activities are developed for them within their regular classrooms or for short sessions in other classrooms.  Students may be nominated by parents, classroom teachers or specialists.  An assessment process will take place to determine the academic needs and strengths of the student.
