AIG Local Plan
The state of North Carolina requires every public school district to have an AIG Local Plan as mandated by the state legislature known as Article 9B. The AIG Local plan outlines the processes, procedures, services, and supports concerning gifted education within a school district. The AIG Plan is organized based on the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction's (NCDPI) AIG Program Standards (PDF) created to serve as a statewide framework and guide for school districts to develop, coordinate, and implement thoughtful and comprehensive AIG programs. These standards reflect Article 9B (N.C.G.S. § 115C-150.5-.08) and are nationally-accepted best practices in gifted education. Furthermore, the AIG Program Standards help ensure that the needs of AIG students are met and the potential of AIG students is optimally developed.
