Information Regarding TAG Program Referrals

Grades 5 - 8


Current Students:

TAG testing in HPISD takes place in the spring of each year. The deadline for 2019-2020 school year has passed. Information about testing for the 2020-2021 school year will be posted in the fall of 2020 and shared in the Raider Weekly.


Newly Enrolled Students:

Students who are new to HPISD may be referred by a parent for TAG testing within 3 weeks of enrollment. Please email Elyse Griffin at griffil@hpisd.org for the link to the parent referral form if you would like to test for TAG. The completed referral form must be received prior to testing.

Please note: if a referral for a new student is not received within 3 weeks of enrollment, the next opportunity for the student to test for TAG will be the district-wide event in the spring of 2020, for 2020-2021 identification and placement. Additionally, students may test one time per academic year. Therefore, if a new student does not qualify for TAG placement in the fall, s/he may not retest until spring of 2021 for placement in the 2021-2022 school year.
