AIG Standards and Practices In 2010, AIG Practices had to be designated as maintained, focus, or future practices Plan does not allow for future practices, rather practices must be focused or maintained. Warren County Schools accomplished many practices, including future ones in the AIG Plan cycle. Maintained practices were also improved.

Targeted areas for AIG Plan Increasing professional development opportunities for general education teachers related to AIG learners Establishing an AIG Advisory Board in Warren County Increasing partnerships with the community and institutions of higher learning to benefit gifted education Providing more opportunities for feedback regarding the AIG Program.
AIG Coordinator The 2010 AIG Plan suggested an AIG Coordinator was needed to oversee the AIG Plan and implementation. AIG Specialists work in conjunction with EC Director to implement the AIG Plan The NC Department of Public Instruction finds this to be acceptable due to the fact that our AIG Specialists are fully licensed.
