AIG Update for Teachers
Unlike 3-5, NHC only identifies K-2 students needing extensive differentiation. (For example, a 1st grade student would be performing on a 4th or 5th grade level.) As a result of the rigorous criteria, identification of a K-2 student in NHC is rare. In order to establish the need for extensive services, additional data is required and the K-2 nomination process is also more lengthy. K-2 students who are nominated will, therefore, be discussed at the January/February Match Team meeting.
Anyone can nominate a student for AIG services. If you have a student you would like to nominate, please let me know.
AIG Levels of Service Delivery
Once identified for AIG, there are three levels of service for which a 3-5 student may qualify:
1. Moderate: typically represents “in-class” adaptations according to academic skills in specified areas. The focus is on developing potential, increasing skills, and exposing students to advanced content.
2. Significant: typically represents services designed for students who display strong academic ability, approximately 2 or more years above grade level.
3. Extensive: represents services that involve radical acceleration of content, process, and/or environment. Students recommended for these services are working 3-4 years above grade level.
