Inspiring Excellence in Every StudentAcademically/Intellectually Gifted
“ We must begin to tell our young, There's a world waiting for you, Yours is the quest that's just begun. ” James Weldon JohnsonOVERVIEW OF CURRITUCK COUNTY SCHOOLS AIG PROGRAM
The Currituck County Plan for Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted Education is aligned with the goals and objectives of the Currituck County School System and the State Board of Education's Guidelines for developing local AIG plans.
Currituck County Schools Academically Intellectually or Gifted Program will ensure that academically or intellectually gifted students are provided with a high level of intellectual stimulation and the opportunity to develop their full potential through high expectations, excellence in teaching, and rigorous approach required for success in a globally competitive world and life in the 21st century.
The Currituck County Public Schools' AIG Program utilizes a full Integrative model to meet the needs of AIG students in grades K through 12. This model is one that makes available, through direct and indirect services, the assistance and resources to identify, support and challenge gifted students. This model enables students to develop to their full potential while utilizing the mainstream curriculum.
It is the philosophy of Currituck County Public Schools that it is the QUALITY, not the QUANTITY of programs and services that make the difference. Simply stated, the AIG Program operates on the premise of "Not More, But Different" when meeting the needs of every AIG student.____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
