All District Highly Capable Referral Period: Jan. 7-18

Does your child perform at significantly advanced academic levels when compared with others? Consider referring them for highly capable services by submitting a referral packet Jan. 7-18.  

Learning characteristics could include:

  • Analytical thinker
  • Accelerated learner
  • Advanced language speaker
  • Self-motivated

The identification of students who are among the most highly capable is done by testing their cognitive ability, academic abilities and academic achievement levels.  To learn more about highly capable services, attend the Parent Information Night on Jan. 15 at Lakeridge Middle School from 6-7 p.m.

The District will notify families with testing times by Feb. 15.
