Highly Capable Program Referrals Now Open

Highly Capable Program Referral Now Open

Every fall, we start the process to identify new students to receive highly capable services. As defined by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), highly capable students are those who perform or show potential for performing at significantly advanced academic levels when compared with others of their age, experiences, or environments. The mission of the Monroe School District Highly Capable Program is to identify and serve highly capable K­12 students by providing a consistent, challenging and supportive educational environment within the resources of the district.

Any student in grade K, 1, 3, 5-11 with parent/guardian permission may be referred by staff, family, or community members. All 2nd and 4th graders are universally screened and therefore do NOT require a referral form. The nomination process for the Highly Capable Program opens on November 7th and closes on December 9th. When a referral is received, the screening process will be triggered to determine a student’s eligibility for highly capable services. The screening dates are TBD.

The Referral Form will be available in Family Access on November 7th. If you prefer paper copies, they can be found on our Highly Capable Program web page or here: English / Spanish.
