Academically/Intellectually Gifted Screening Grades 3-12
Screening creates a list of students who may be in need of differentiated services beyond those provided by the regular classroom.
The screening process is ongoing and requires time and discussion. It is the most important process, however, since it eventually determines who will be identified gifted at the school.
The AIG Needs Determination Team collects student names and information from all appropriate sources. Additionally, the team surveys EOG/EOC and aptitude data available in the school and collects student names from this information. In grades 9-12, students not identified gifted yet excelling in honors and AP classes are typically included in the screening.
Screening Request Directions for Parents
A parent may request AIG screening. Parents may write a letter to the AIG Needs Determination Team expressing why they feel their child needs AIG screening.
The following criteria should be included in the letter: Student’s name, date, the reason for the request (what is seen at home that reflects gifted characteristics), and parent signature.
