TAG instruction needed
In order to meet the needs of ALL learners there needs to be targeted instruction provided to students in TAG! I have two students identified as TAG and the most they’ve gotten are some independent projects to do on their own time. This is really sad and a detriment to their learning. I saw several other comments addressing the same issue and I know it is a problem across the district. Just like special education, there needs to be direct instruction and money targeted for advanced learners! Too often if this does not happen the advanced students are not getting their needs met and either become bored or disengaged from learning all together. This also impacts growth scores and test scores because those students are not being encouraged to continue their learning even though they are already proficient. It is really sad that such a highly qualified district does not provide this basic instruction and is not giving these students what they deserve!
