AIG Teacher Certification

 

Currently in North Carolina, a teacher can add Academically Gifted (88087) as an area to his or her license only if fully licensed in another area. AIG add-on licensure may be obtained through one of the following pathways:

 

In North Carolina, a teacher can earn an add-on AIG license through an accredited Institute of Higher Education. Programs are generally 12 to 16 semester hours of credit; some offer graduate programs.

 

The colleges/universities that offer AIG licensure coursework have had their programs approved by DPI. Each of them has a minimum of 4 courses required for the licensure. Each university sets their own tuition rate.  Click on the button below for a list of the colleges and universities that offers an AIG add-on licensure and/or Masters in Gifted Education. 

 


 

 

An alternative to completing course work is, a teacher can obtain the AIG add-on licensure by taking and passing the Praxis Exam (5258) for Gifted Education.  Rockingham County School's AIG Department offers a year long blended professional development course to prepare teachers to take the Gifted Education Praxis.  The course is entitled Gifted Education Experts for Kids or GEEK Squad.  For additional information about this professional development opportunity view the presentation located at the button below.
