Information Regarding TAG Program Referrals

Grades 5 - 8



TAG testing in HPISD takes place in the spring of each year.  Referral forms will be available online November 3, 2017.  The referral window closes at 11:59 pm on December 22, 2017.  Referrals for TAG testing will not be accepted after December 22, 2017. All additional paperwork must be delivered to the campus TAG specialist via email, or addressed to the TAG specialist and delivered to the main office.

Referral form:







 Students who are new to HPISD may be referred by a parent for TAG testing within 3 weeks of enrollment.  Please email 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, for 2018-19 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 2019 for placement in the 2019-20 school year.
