Continuous Student Learning in a Caring, Engaging Environment

Continuous Student Learning in a Caring, Engaging Environment

Program Overview
We provide a continuum of services to eligible students. At the elementary level, we offer a self-contained program for grades 4 - 6 and differentiated enrichment opportunities. Students in our secondary schools (grade 7 - 12) have access to accelerated learning opportunities, honors courses, or Advanced Placement and Running Start.
 
Identification
In February 2017, we will screen all second and third grade students using the CogAT. Students in other grades may be nominated for consideration by parents, staff, or others who believe a student would benefit from services. Based on information we have, some students will be selected for further testing using full CogAT battery. Families will be notified about eligibility for services in late April.
 
If you are the parent of a student in the second or third grade, and you do not want your child to participate in the screening for the highly capable program, please complete the bottom portion of the CogAT opt-out form and return it to your child's teacher prior to testing. The test schedule is printed on the form.
 
Nomination
If you would like to nominate a student for the highly capable program, please complete the nomination form and return it to your school or the district office. Further details are available on the form.
