AIG Program Overview
Barb Owens, AIG Coordinatorbowens@wcpss.netKim Gonzalez, AIG Teacherkgonzalez@wcpss.net
Through our AIG Basics program, fourth- and fifth-grade students who are formally identified as academically gifted are grouped for core instruction. Advanced learners in early grades are provided with enrichment opportunities through the Explorers program at grade three and through push-in and pull-out instruction at grades K-2. In addition, we offer a broad array of AG elective courses for students at all grade levels, and we provide content differentiation in core instruction at all grade levels through technology applications, curriculum acceleration, and enrichment.
Would you like to nominate your child for the Academically and or Intellectually Gifted program? AIG Nominations for 4th and 5th grade students are typically accepted at all times! Please note, however, that our fourth grade students will follow the same testing and review process as our third graders this year. ALL 3rd and 4th grade students were tested for potential AIG identification this fall, and cannot be nominated for additional testing this year.
The second semester nomination deadline for fifth grade students is Thursday, December 16, 2021. To nominate a student for consideration, please complete the Spring 2022 AIG Nomination Form. You will receive an e-mail confirmation when your form is received.
Note that the nomination process applies to the following students:
- Fifth grade students not currently identified as AIG
- Fifth grade students interested in adding a second area of AIG identification
Students who are currently identified as AIG in both reading and math are not eligible for further testing.
