3-5 Elementary ACES
Elementary ACES Program
Each elementary school selects from the following service options after assessing its AIG student population and academic needs:
ACES (Accelerated Curriculum for Exceptional Students) Program
In this service option, AIG students, identified in reading and/or math, are clustered (5 minimum) for instruction with other academically capable students. This service delivery model allows schools the flexibility of determining the degree of consultation and pull-out, based on the unique needs of the school’s culture and population. In this blended service model, the AIG teacher may serve AIG students by going into the classroom to assist the regular teacher with differentiation/planning instructional units and by consulting with the teacher to prepare differentiated units.
The AIG teacher may also serve AIG identified students by pulling them out of the cluster classroom to participate in units of study, which extend the NC Standard Course of Study. The endorsed regular classroom teacher, in conjunction with the AIG teacher, plans and teaches challenging enrichment and accelerated instructional activities.
