Part of an incredible network here in NC for AIG Some legislation since 1961, Article 9B 1996 identify and serve, not all states do! Top three states for funding, never enough – but we are grateful for the support, even in these hard times the legislature has maintained this; does not include local monies, like the extra funds Durham provides. Standards allow LEAs local flexilibity ti respond to their own needs within a statewide framework – and have of course guided our plan reviews! DPS – partnership with Duke, strong history of support for professional development, I actually earned y license through support from DPS when I taught here at Fview.
To remember that an AIG learner is not just AIG for an hour a day but all day! With their academic, intellectual social and emotional needs.
