- The 2019-2022 AIG Plan was developed by AIG teachers, parents of AIG students, Central Office personnel, and community leaders. The ABSS Board of Education approved this plan in June, 2019. AIG contact teachers explain the AIG Plan and answer questions pertaining to gifted education to the staff at their schools. Parents are encouraged to contact the AIG teacher at their child's school for information regarding AIG services.
Article 9B- Academically or Intellectually Gifted Students
The NC General Assembly believes the public schools should challenge all students to aim for academic excellence and that academically or intellectually gifted students perform or show the potential to perform at substantially high levels of accomplishment when compared with others of their age, experience, or environment. Academically or intellectually gifted students exhibit high performance capability in intellectual areas, specific academic fields, or in both intellectual areas and specific academic fields. Academically or intellectually gifted students require differentiated educational services beyond those ordinarily provided by the regular educational program. Outstanding abilities are present in students from all cultural groups, across all economic strata, and in all areas of human endeavor. (1996, 2nd Ex. Sess., c. 18, s 18.24 (f).)
