AIG Placement Procedures

AIG Placement Process

    Procedures for AIG Placement

    A student must be nominated for AIG evaluation by parent, teacher, or himself/
    herself.  Nominations must be received in writing.

    Parent or guardian must sign Permission to Evaluate consent form giving the
    AIG Specialist the right to review the student's cumulative folder and admin-
    ister any required tests.

    The AIG Specialist collects all available information about the student's 
    classroom grades, EOG (achievement) scores, and IQ (aptitude) scores.

    If necessary, the AIG Specialist administers standardized achievement or
    aptitude tests to the student.

    AIG Specialist presents documentation to the Academically Intellectually Gifted
    Identification Team (AIGIT).  The AIGIT reviews all data collected and
    recommends appropriate action related to the student's demonstrated need
    for differentiation.  The AIGIT consists of a school administrator or designee,
    the AIG Specialist, and two classroom teachers who are licensed or endorsed
    in gifted education.

    In order to qualify for the AIG Program, students may be identified in one of
    four pathways.  Pathway standards are illustrated in the chart below:

    The school-based AIG Specialist notifies the parents/guardians of the AIGIT's
    decision and student's testing results within 50 school days of the parent's
    signature on the Permission to Evaluate document.
