Academy District 20 follows the Colorado Department of Education standards for identifying TAG students who are capable of high performance and/or exceptional learning behaviors. This body of evidence may include a variety of assessments including, but not limited to: 

  • Achievement assessments

  • Ability assessments

  • Classroom observation

  • Evidence from state and national performance ratings

  • Parent recommendations

  • TAG Advanced Learning Plans (ALP)

  • Teacher recommendations

All TAG students have an Advanced Learning Plan (ALP) which includes academic and affective goals.  To ensure rigor and engagement, plans and goals are developed using a team approach between the TAG teachers/coordinators, students, families and classroom teachers. ALPs are consistently monitored and modified.
