why aig
Why AIG?

The purpose of the Academically and Intellectually Gifted (AIG) Program is to provide challenging educational program for students who perform, or show potential for performing, at high levels of accomplishment.

Here in North Carolina, state law requires all school districts to have their own AIG Plan.

This goal is academic excellence and for all students to grow to their potential. We do not want children to be bored in the classroom!

aig funding in nc
AIG Funding- in NC

In the U.S., education decisions and funding occur mainly at the state level. NC is 4th highest in state funding to AIG Programs. Counties or towns may contribute additional funds in some states.

The NC General Assembly authorizes funds designated for AIG Students based on 4% of Average Daily Membership/ ADM* (average number of students) at $ $1163.07 per pupil for 2012-2013. These funds are allocated as 1% of general student allocation from Department of Public Education/DPI to each school district, or Local Education Agency/LEA.


aig program plans
AIG Program Plans

The Local AIG Plan is approved by the local Board of Education and submitted to State Board of Education/DPI for comment. DPI assists LEAs with their local AIG program and plan but does not approve local plans.

AIG plans must be revised every three years by the LEA. Current local AIG plans will be revised and resubmitted in July 2013

Your LEA/Local Education Agency’s AIG plan Is online.

aig program standards
AIG Program Standards
  • The appropriate educational services for AIG students are delivered to your child through district, school and classroom practices according to the AIG Plan which follows six standards.
  • These six standards, as described in State Board of Education Policy GCS-U-000, are outlined in following pages.
nc aig program standard 1
NC AIG Program Standard #1

Standard 1: Student Identification is to be clear, equitable, and comprehensive.

Each LEA is to determine their own identification requirements for Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted students using multiple criteria and measurements. In NC, this does not include artistic abilities, leadership, etc. (albeit, those are great traits!)

Documented process includes timelines, required forms/communication, placement, reviews and,

if necessary, grievance policies.

nc aig program standard 2
NC AIG Program Standard #2

Standard 2: Differentiated Curriculum and Instruction

AIG differentiation includes rigorous instruction and engaging activities adapted for the more advanced learners – so that every child is learning.

How this looks in the classroom may differ based on each LEA, school and other factors. Some LEA’s may have special AIG magnet schools.

Examples of possible options are given on the following pages based on the school/age level of your child.

NC AIG Standard #2 (continued)

At the elementary and middle school levels, there might be the following delivery options:

  • flexible grouping of similar learners;
  • varied pacing of how much time is offered for learning possibly through curriculum compacting;
  • “pull out” where students are removed from class for specialized instruction in another area;
  • “push in” where specialist suggests material to be done inside the classroom; and/or
  • Interest centers or Independent projects.

NC AIG Standard #2 (continued)

More options for K-8 include:

  • NC State Board of Education/SBE Policy GCS-J-001 details early kindergarten admission requirements.
  • Grade or subject acceleration is another option that any School Principal has by law for AIG children.
  • NC SBE Policy GCS-M-001 allows for credit by demonstrated mastery and middle school students to take certain high school courses for graduation credit

(Acronyms and Gifted Terminology Guides may help!)

NC AIG Standard #2 (continued)

Many options exist for high school AIG courses:

  • Schools may offer “Honor” classes or Advancement Placement college courses. NC SBE Policy GCS-M-001 allows for credit by demonstrated mastery.
  • NC Virtual Public Schools offers online courses for remedial and acceleration purposes. These can be taken during the school year or over the summer.
  • Many “Early Colleges” also serve high school AIG students.

NC AIG Standard #2 (continued)

More options for AIG High school students:

  • The Governor's School is a six-week summer residential program funded by NC for intellectually gifted high school students.
  • NC School of Science and Math is a residential magnet school for Junior and Senior High School students funded by NC.
nc aig standard 3
NC AIG Standard #3

Standard 3: Personnel and Professional Development

Establishes specific and appropriate professional development requirements for all personnel involved in AIG programs and services, including classroom teachers, counselors, and school administrators.

All teachers should know how to differentiate and meet the needs of AIG students. Differentiation does not expect all children to be doing the same thing all the time.

NC AIG Standard #4

Standard 4: Comprehensive Programming within entire school community.

Communication is necessary to ensure:

  • comprehensive school service to meet the diverse academic, intellectual, social, and emotional needs of AIG students; and
  • effective continuation of K-12 services, especially at key transition points;
  • inclusion of all special subcategories and doubly identified AIG students with learning disabilities.

Gifted children are connected to the whole school!

NC AIG Standard #5

Standard 5: Partnerships

  • The LEA ensures participation of stakeholders in the planning and implementation of the local AIG program.
  • Engages parents/families in a meaningful way; and
  • Forms partnerships with parents/families, institutions of higher education, local businesses and industry, and other stakeholders within the community to enhance and gain support for AIG programs and services.
nc aig standard 6
NC AIG Standard #6

Standard 6: Program Accountability

  • The LEA implements, monitors, and evaluates the local AIG program and plan to ensure that all programs and services are effective.
  • Plans are approved by LEA School Board and sent to DPI for review and comment.
  • Uses and monitors state funds allotted for the local AIG program according to state policy.
  • Data is used to monitor effectiveness of AIG Plan.
  • Advisory AIG Councils include parents and others.
