Talented and Gifted (TAG)

    Douglass TAG Program

    The TAG program at Douglass is a small group pull-out and/or project-based independent guided study designed to meet the needs of the students who have demonstrated potential abilities which are so outstanding that qualitatively different programming is essential.  Programming is designed to meet cognitive and affective needs through opportunities for acceleration, complexity of thinking, and in-depth learning. 

    At Douglass Elementary, the TAG Educational Advisor is the primary TAG advocate for students, communications, and programming in the school.

    The TAG Advisor at Douglass Elementary is available Monday - Thursday, 9:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
