Highly Capable Program Referral Window Now Open September 1-15 

Posted by Elizabeth Egan on September 01, 2019

Referrals of students to determine possible eligibility for the Highly Capable Program are now being accepted online through September 15.

*Please note, all kindergarten students will be screened this fall to determine eligibility for further testing for possible selection into the Highly Capable program. 

The District’s referral procedure may include screening procedures as allowed by state statute. Please go to the Highly Capable website for further information and to access the online referral questionnaire and the online referral form. Individuals making a referral must use the District provided online referral form. The following exceptions will apply:

  1. Referrals will not be accepted for students who were tested for the Highly Capable Program in the previous school year. 
  2. Referrals for second grade students will not be accepted as testing for these students will occur mid-year.
  3. Referrals for students new to the district who enroll after September 15 will be accepted for ten (10) school days from the enrollment date.
  4. Students new to the district enrolling after the HCP fall testing window who meet the screening criteria will be assessed prior to the beginning of the next school year. 

Students may be referred by individuals including teachers, other staff, parents, and members of the community.
