AIG Nomination Process 2021-2022
High school students who are not currently identified for the AIG program may be self-nominated or nominated by a peer, parent, teacher, counselor, or school administrator for the gifted program. Once nominated the student will have the opportunity to proceed with the nomination process and be considered for identification in the high school gifted program. To nominate a student for the high school gifted program, complete the AIG Nomination Form @ https://forms.gle/sFTzBFPWxHKNAfXQ7
Nominations are accepted at any time. However, the nomination process is completed January through March of each year in order to take advantage of 1st semester grades and work samples.
Students will receive a nomination packet in January to complete and return to Angela Jeffrey @ firstname.lastname@example.org. This nomination packet includes:
Teacher Classroom Data Form
Student Self Assessmet Checklist
Student Work Samples
In February/March, a Match Team composed of the AIG Specialist, a school counselor, Teacher, and an administrator will meet to review the nomination packet. A determination will then be made about the next step. The possible outcomes of this meeting include:
Placement in the high school AIG program
Need for further testing
Placement on a "watch" list with the potential to be re-evaluated
Does not receive placement in the AIG program
Any necessary testing will be completed in time for a determination to be made about placement within a few weeks of the initial match team meeting whenever possible.
Once a student is identified a High School Academic Blueprint will be created for the student to be reviewed by both the student and parents before it is finalized. This blueprint will be maintained on a yearly basis throughout the student's high school career.
Parent Advocacy for Gifted Students

The Gifted Advisory Council (GAC) is a parent and community organization for NHCS that reviews all aspects of our AIG program and makes recommendations for program improvement. It is comprised of community members, parents/families of AIG students, teachers, and other professional staff. Each NHC school is invited to select a liaison to attend monthly meetings and report relevant issues to the school. The GAC Liaison for Laney High School for the 2019-2020 school year is Aitza Galarza, email@example.com.

New Hanover County School Gifted Information Sessions and Advocacy (GISA)In partnership with the Watson College of Education, New Hanover County School District (NHCS) is presenting our 3rd annual series of informational sessions for parents and caregivers. The sessions focus on the characteristics, needs, support strategies and enrichment opportunities for gifted learners and are intended to help parents/caregivers deepen their understanding of their gifted child and giftedness as it pertains to many aspects of his or her life. Each session will reflect a different topic but discussions often encompass an array of significant topics concerning the experiences of gifted learners and their families.
