Teacher Identification Process

The flow chart below demonstrates the process teachers are to go through to nominate students for the academically and gifted (AIG) program. The requirements for teachers to identify students is a simple process and looks like this:
  1. Evaluate data such as IQ test results, EOG scores, benchmark results, in class observations, math entrance exam, Renzulli inventory assessment
  2. Create a list of students who they think show potential for success in the AIG program
  3. Present the names of students being nominated to the AIG committee along with appropriate reasonings for the placement
  4. At this point the AIG team reviews the information and makes an informed decision on an individual student basis. If the student is deemed one for the program the classroom teacher does not need to proceed any further. If the team does not believe the AIG program is the right fit for the student, the teacher and team will have to create a Differentiated Education Plan (DEP)

Parent and Student Recommendation Flow Chart

The flow chart below demonstrates the process parents and students are to go through to nominate students for the academically and gifted (AIG) program. The requirements for parents and students to identify students is a simple process and looks like this:
  1. Parent or student contacts the guidance department with their concern. Together the guidance counselor, parents, and students sit down to discuss the basis for this request and to discuss the requirements
  2. The guidance counselor then must evaluate data such as IQ test results, EOG scores, benchmark results, in class observations, etc
  3. The guidance counselor must locate the appropriate measures for qualification into the program including any teacher recommendations if applicable
  4. Present the names of students being nominated to the AIG committee along with appropriate reasonings for the placement
  5. At this point the AIG team reviews the information and makes an informed decision on an individual student basis. If the student is deemed one for the program the classroom teacher does not need to proceed any further. If the team does not believe the AIG program is the right fit for the student, the teacher and team will have to create a Differentiated Education Plan (DEP)
