The 2013 2016 state aig plan a focus for iredell statesville schools

The 2013-2016 State AIG Plan:A focus for Iredell-Statesville Schools


The why

The “Why”

  • To best meet the needs of our AIG learners who are AIG all day, every day

  • To train our school personnel on best practices for advanced learners

  • To respond to the feedback from all AIG stakeholders in order to improve services


The why1

The “Why”

As outlined in the local gifted plan, we strive to inform all stakeholders: parents, students, teachers, school administrators, and support staff about the delivery of differentiated services and instruction for AIG students, the regulations related to gifted education, and the local AIG plan. This information is available on the district website, through individual student conferences and through both staff and parent meetings.


The who

Grades K-2

Ability and achievement test scores 95th percentile or higher

Tested on an individual basis based upon the referral approved by the GPS team

Testing can only be done once in K-2

Criteria is higher due to the fact only two are used

Grades 3-12

Ability (CogAT/90th percentile or higher), achievement (EOG/93rd percentile or higher), final grades (93 percent or higher)

Qualifying scores need to be in the same subject area

There continue to be multiple pathways for identification (portfolios, alternative assessments, Iowa Acceleration Scale).

The “Who”


Additional considerations

Additional Considerations

  • Level I Students--AIG-identified students transferring from another district

  • Level II Students 3-12--AIG students meeting the 93rd percentile or higher achievement/93 percent or higher final grades/90th percentile or higher CogAT requirements

  • Level II Students K-2--AIG students meeting the 95th percentile or higher aptitude and 95th percentile or higher achievement requirements

  • Level III Students--AIG students qualifying for subject advancement – 99th percentile in aptitude/achievement and 99% final grades in one specific subject area

  • Level IV Students--AIG students qualifying for grade advancement – 99th percentile in both reading and math in aptitude/achievement and 99% grades in both reading and math; Iowa Acceleration Scale; principal observations; Director of AIG consultation

    * A screening list is kept at each school of potential students and updated regularly to reflect current data


The who continued

The “Who” continued…


The portfolio pathway

The Portfolio Pathway

  • Students are given the option in 5th, 7th, and 10th grades to complete a portfolio when they have two of three criteria for identification.

  • Parents are notified and sign permission for the portfolio process.

  • Portfolios should include five exemplary work samples completed at school in the area of consideration.

  • Students and teachers reflect on each sample, and a teacher recommendation is included.

  • Portfolios are evaluated by the portfolio screening committee using a rubric for scoring.

  • Passing portfolio scores take the place of the missing criterion for identification.
