Frequently Asked Questions about the P-CCS Talented and Gifted (TAG) Program
What is the TAG Program?
How is the TAG classroom different from a same-grade classroom at the home school?
Who is eligible for nomination to the TAG Program?
To be nominated for admission to the Plymouth-Canton TAG Program, a student must reside within the P-CCS district boundaries or attend through School of Choice program and currently be in grades 2-7. There are certain neighborhoods in Canton whose children attend either Wayne-Westland or VanBuren schools but they are not eligible for the TAG program.
Middle school TAG students pick up a bus in their neighborhood and are transported to their home middle school where they will board another bus to transport them to East Middle School. Likewise, students will be transported back to their home school to board a bus back to their neighborhood each afternoon. Currently, the district is looking at other options for more efficient middle school transportation for the next school year.
How can we be sure the TAG Program is right for our child?
A Parent Informational meeting is held each November for families whose children are interested in the TAG program. Please watch the TAG website for updated information in late October/early November.
