The purpose of this website is to provide you with information about the AIG Program in elementary school. It will keep you up to date with opportunities for enrichment, important dates, and ideas and suggestions for working with your AIG student.
AIG Program Standards
“The General Assembly believes that public schools should challenge all students to aim for academic excellence” (Article 9B). The State Board of Education’s (SBE) mission is that “every public school student will graduate from high school, globally competitive for work and postsecondary education and prepared for life in the 21st Century.” Therefore, quality and comprehensive AIG programs are essential in supporting these goals and the needs of gifted learners across North Carolina.
AIG programs in North Carolina are embedded within and responsive to the local context of an LEA and, as a result, give rise to differences among programs across the state. Therefore, the AIG Program Standards are critical in providing a statewide framework for quality programming, while still honoring local flexibility. In an effort to strengthen gifted education in North Carolina, these AIG Program Standards represent the SBE’s and DPI’s commitment to ensure that the academic, intellectual, social, and emotional needs of AIG students are being met.
