The NC AIG Program Standards were initially approved by the State Board of Education in 2009 and have been revised every three years (2012, 2015, and 2018) to reflect any updates, technical corrections, or clarifying language. The NC AIG Program Standards play a critical role in the development of the local AIG programs and plan. Per legislation, the SBE develops guidelines for local AIG plan development.  The NC AIG Program Standards are the official guidelines for the development of local AIG plans.

The NC AIG Program Standards have been developed to serve as a statewide framework and guide LEAs to develop, coordinate, and implement thoughtful and comprehensive AIG programs. These standards reflect Article 9B (N.C.G.S. § 115C-150.5-.08) and nationally-accepted best practices in gifted education. Furthermore, the AIG Program Standards help ensure that the needs of AIG students are met and the potential of AIG students is optimally developed.
