AIG
Academically or Intellectually Gifted (AIG) Program

 

Teacher: Mrs. Margaret Tierney

 

AIG services are provided at each grade level.

 

The AIG teacher offers academic enrichment to K-2 students who demonstrate a need for this service.  The program is called Problem Solvers. This is not formal identification for the AIG program. Instead it provides enrichment for primary students whose needs vary from year to year.

 

In grades 3-5, students are cluster grouped with other AIG students in a heterogeneous class. They attend an enrichment class, taught by the AIG Teacher for 45 minutes to one hour each week. Formally identified in the AIG program, these students have demonstrated a definite need for a differentiated curriculum.
