Spring Screening Process

It is the time of year for the AIG department to start our annual spring screening process. Each student currently enrolled in our schools, in grades 3-7, is automatically included in the spring screening process. Teachers at each of our schools review current student data to evaluate each child’s potential candidacy for AIG Services for the following school year. Students are assessed based on their current grades and testing data. Students who have met two of our qualifying criteria for AIG services may be referred for further testing. Please note that not all students are tested during this process. Only the students who fit within our criteria are evaluated further.
