Randolph County Schools Vision for local AIG program

The vision of the Randolph County Schools AIG program is to meet the educational needs of its academically or intellectually gifted students in an environment responsive to their needs in order that they may become participating, productive citizens. We have a responsibility to identify, nurture, and develop the potential of each student by providing extended opportunities to accelerate or enrich the North Carolina Standard Course of Study, in order that students may become participating, productive citizens. Randolph County Schools is committed to success for all students.

AIG students in all Language Arts classes are expected to:

  • Have a clear comprehension of key elements (main ideas, evidence, point of view, etc.)

  • Lessons will accelerate and enhance the North Carolina Standard Course of Study for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade

  • Classes will move rapidly and to greater sophistication and abstraction in understanding

  • Lessons will be in greater depth (assessments of prior knowledge given)

  • Independent studies every nine weeks (all grades)

  • Use of the Vocabulary Workshop at the 6th,7th, and 8th grade levels to enhance vocabulary, as well as to introduce students to vocabulary lessons similar to what is expected of them on the SAT

  • The use of Junior Great Books program for higher level thinking skills

  • Use of higher level and critical thinking skills including:

    • Cognitive memory skills

The dep what is it
The DEPWhat is it?

  • DEP stands for Differentiation Education Plan.

  • A DEP has been developed for your child that has been identified in one or more areas of the AIG program.

  • A new DEP must be signed at the beginning of each school year to make sure that the educational needs of the child is being met.

  • Most DEP’s have 3 basic categories that are checked:

    • Cluster grouping within a regular class

    • Differentiated units

    • Advanced Content


Cluster grouping
Cluster Grouping

  • Cluster Grouping means that your child is either identified as math, reading, or both or is being nurtured in those areas.

  • A student who is being nurtured does not meet the guidelines to be identified, but works well in the AIG class room setting.

Differentiated units
Differentiated Units

  • Differentiated units means that students in the AIG class are doing work that is different from other students in the same grade. The NC Standard Course of Study is being followed; assignments are being enriched to bring a deeper meaning to the lesson.

Advanced content
Advanced Content

  • Advanced content is learning at a faster pace. Students will be expected to work 1-2 years above grade level in reading and math

  • Advanced content ties into differentiated units as well. The use of prior knowledge is assessed at the beginning of each lesson to determine how advanced the lesson can be.
