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. Student may be identified as talented and gifted in one or more of the following areas:
Visual arts, performing arts, musical or psychomotor abilities
Schools follow the BVSD
Acceleration policy when making decisions about subject or grade level acceleration for students. Some highly advanced gifted children may enter kindergarten or first grade early through the BVSD Early Access policy. The classroom teacher is the primary provider of advanced academic services to students. Programming is documented in the student's
Advanced Learning Plan (ALP) or, at the secondary level, (ICAP). Programming may include academic, enrichment, and affective (social emotional) supports and extensions.
BVSD sponsors four district-wide enrichment activities. These are open to students whether they are identified as talented and gifted or not. More information is available at the links below.
The TAG Educational Advisor is the primary advocate for students, communications, and programming in the school.
