    TAG News:

    District Wide TAG (Talented and Gifted) Testing ~ Springfield Public Schools


    On Saturday, February 22, 2020, Springfield Public Schools will hold their district wide Talented and Gifted Testing at Ridgeview Elementary School. 

    The TAG test assesses whether or not your child is at the 97%ile or above in the areas of Reading, Math, or Intellectual giftedness. The 97%ile means that if your child was in a line of 100 students, they would know more than the first 97 students in line. These children are at the top of their class, and typically above most students at their entire grade level at school.  

    Students must be referred for screening by February 7, 2020. After you refer them for screening, the teacher will pull  all of the data for the screening and be in contact with you about whether or not your child would qualify to test. If your child qualifies for testing, you will receive a packet from your school with a parent questionnaire and more information about times of testing for your individual child.

    If your child is already qualified as TAG, and you feel that your child may need to be accelerated a grade level, you would also speak to your child’s teacher and the TAG contact to refer your child for acceleration by February 7, 2020.

    The testing for acceleration will take place Saturday, February 22, 2020, for the above grade level test in Reading, Math, Writing, Science, Reference & Research and/or Social Studies. After testing, we will meet as a team with your school to discuss the next steps and fill out the Iowa Acceleration Scale.

Ridgeview Principal Corner

  • Welcome to Ridgeview Elementary

    Posted by Jeremy Hugo on 1/13/2020

    Dear Ridgeview families,

    I hope this letter finds you and your family doing well, staying healthy and excited for the New Year. After meeting with the Ridgeview staff this past Monday morning I can tell you that we are all excited to start 2020 off on the right foot. Through our efforts and your support, we have a great foundation built to hit the ground running as we start the second half of the school year. We will be very busy in the coming weeks reviewing schoolwide Safe, Respectful, and Responsible behavior as well as beginning the second round of our academic progress monitoring. As a staff, we look forward to seeing and sharing all of the academic gains that your kids are making.

    I want to express my gratitude once again for the continued support of our Ridgeview families. With your support and the efforts and love that our staff pour into our students each day, the kids are ready and able to make good choices each day with their behavior and learning. I am looking forward to a great second half of the school year!

     Jeremy Hugo-Principal
