AIG Fall Nomination Process

The 2015-16 school year AIG fall nomination window is now open and will close September 25th at 5pm. If your child was identified as AIG at any Wake County Public School, the records have been forwarded to Davis Drive MS and no nomination is necessary. The established AIG service levels will remain in effect.


If your child was identified as gifted in a different school district, you may nominate your child for WCPSS AIG identification.


The Nomination Window represents the time that students may be nominated for the AIG Program. Students may nominate themselves or be nominated by a parent, guardian, or teacher. Nomination does not guarantee that a student will be tested to qualify for the AIG Program. However, all nominated student records are reviewed by a committee to determine whether or not the student should be referred for testing.


If you would like to nominate your son/daughter, please send an email to ecrowell@wcpss.net


Please list the following four items in the email:

    • Child's Full Name
    • Current Grade Level
    • Your Name
    • Your Relationship to the child
