AIG Placement Procedures

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

-The parent or guardian must sign a "Permission to Evaluate" consent form giving the AIG Specialist permission to administer any required tests and begin the evaluation process.

-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 school-based identification team, called the SCALE Team (SCALE stands for "School Connections for Advanced Learning Excellence"). The SCALE Team reviews all data collected and recommends appropriate action related to the student's demonstrated need for differentiation. The SCALE Team consists of a school administrator or designee, the AIG Specialist, and at least two classroom teachers who are licensed or endorsed in gifted education.

-The school-based AIG Specialist will notify parents of the SCALE Team decision once determined.
