A Local Education Agency (school district/LEA) determines its policies and practices regarding its local AIG program through the development of a local AIG plan. Each local AIG plan responds to state legislation and the NC AIG Program Standards. The local AIG plan is approved by the local board of education and submitted to State Board of Education/Department of Public Instruction for comment. Local AIG Plans are required by NC state legislation, Article 9B (~115C-150.5-.8) and must be revised every three years by the LEA.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is currently revising its local AIG Plan. An AIG Advisory Council has been formed to provide feedback on current practices and propose changes and enhancements to this work. This diverse group of both district and community stakeholders meets regularly.
