AIG: Program Information

A primary goal of the Davie County Schools gifted education program is to improve the educational performance of Academically/Intellectually Gifted (AIG) students. The program identifies students with high abilities and high academic achievement using multiple criteria. An array of services in a variety of settings is utilized in order to meet the academic needs of highly able learners.


In grades 4 and 5, AIG students are grouped together for acceleration and enrichment. The mathematics curriculum is compacted so that students usually progress through three levels during grades 4 and 5. The language arts curriculum provides students with materials and activities that elaborate upon the content, skills, and products of the North Carolina Common Core. The content is generally one or more years above grade level.


A nurturing program is provided for AIG candidates in grades 1 - 3. The AIG teacher helps the regular classroom teacher identify students who need nurturing services. Students who have demonstrated mastery of grade-level skills are provided with challenging enrichment activities.
