Philosophy and Mission
The Ashland School District is committed to identifying and providing for the unique intellectual, social, emotional, and career needs of intellectually gifted and academically talented children in grades K – 12. It is our goal to ensure that all learners, including gifted learners, are provided stimulating, challenging and meaningful educational experiences with lessons and materials appropriate for each student’s assessed level and rate of learning. Our philosophy fosters educational alternatives in a broader social context promoting:
  • High expectations and achievement
  • Intellectual stimulation and collaboration
  • Academic enrichment
  • Social and emotional growth

We acknowledge and support the vital role of the classroom teacher in creating differentiated instruction for the unique needs of exceptional learners within the classroom setting.

Programs and Services
Ashland School District's Talented and Gifted Program Plan

Elementary Schools: Classroom teachers are responsible for meeting the PEP for identified students. Teachers may use several different ways to address the education needs of identified TAG students in the regular classroom.

Middle School: The CORE teachers will be responsible for meeting the needs of identified students
through FLEX plans or individual PEPs, if requested by the parent. Elective teachers may
be asked to complete a FLEX plan or a PEP by an administrator on an as needed basis.
TAG programs and services are built upon options already existing within the middle
school.

High School: Content area teachers will be responsible for meeting the needs of identified students
through FLEX plans or individual PEPs, if requested by the parent. Elective teachers
may be asked to complete a FLEX plan or a PEP by an administrator on an as needed
basis. TAG programs and services are built upon options already existing within the high
school.

For more detailed information regarding support and possible instructional modifications for each level, please see the ASD Talented and Gifted Education Procedures Manual.
