Parent Referral information

If you feel your child performs at “substantially high levels of accomplishment when compared with others of their age,” you may refer your child to be screened by the AIG Committee at your child’s school. Parents may refer their child/children to the AIG committee through a written request to the principal stating why their child should be considered for screening, with details and/or examples that show a need for differentiated gifted services.

The referral date for screening for the 2021-22 school year for the Academically/Intellectually Gifted (AIG) Program is the last day school is in session before the Thanksgiving Holiday in November. Please be aware that per the ABSS AIG Plan students are not tested in consecutive years in grades K-2 or in grades 3-5 and 6-8 unless they are placed in the talent pool. A referral by parent/guardian and/or teacher is not an automatic guarantee of AIG testing. The school-based AIG Committee will determine if a student either (1) requires additional assessment to determine a need for differentiated instruction, or (2) is already in a learning environment that is appropriate and does not require additional assessment. Parents/guardians will be notified in writing regarding the decision of the AIG Committee.
