AIG

Whiteville City Schools - AIG - All Day, Every Day!

Welcome to the  
school year!
NWA  

                             
   

Each year, the identification/placement teams at the elementary and middle schools review multiple sources of data to determine the best placement for current AIG students and to consider new AIG placements for the upcoming school year. Stakeholders can submit a student's name to the school's AIG specialist for possible consideration as placement in the AIG Program. In order for a student to be placed in the Academically or Intellectually Gifted Program, the placement criteria must be met.

Estudiantes con talentos intelectuales y académicos necesitan servicios educativos más avanzados y diferentes a los programas de educación regular. Se hacen presentes habilidades extraordinarias en estudiantes de todo tipo de grupos culturales, niveles económicos y en todo tipo de áreas que el ser humano sea capaz de desarrollar. (Del articulo 9-B)
 
North Carolina  Gifted Law (Article 9B)
For twenty-five years North Carolina has been a leader in advocacy and legislation for providing an appropriate education for academically gifted students. In August 1996, the General Assembly passed new legislation which changed gifted education in the state. The law, Article 9B, created a multi-tiered system of responsibility and accountability for building a foundation for North Carolina's gifted children. All parts of the foundation — the State Board of Education, the Department of Public Instruction, the local board of education and its system's administration, teachers, parents, and the community — must work together to support the state's high-potential children. The students themselves have also been given responsibility for using the options and support available to them and for working to demonstrate successful performance.
