Highly Capable


NEW Screening & Testing Procedures

This school year the Highly Capable Office has updated their testing procedures to keep in line with new state legislation that passed last spring.

For grade level identification procedures, please refer to the Identification page and select the appropriate grade level.

December -  Grades 3 & 5 Screening

During the month of December 3rd and 5th grade students will be universally screened for further assessment. 

What does this mean? Families do not need to do anything

A Multidisciplinary Selection Committee (MDSC) will review each student's assessment profile (state and district assessments) to determine if further testing is needed.
Results of the screening will be sent via Parent Square after Winter Break.

If your student is eligible for further assessment you will receive directions within the Parent Square post to provide consent for additional testing at their home school.

Full battery testing for highly capable services will be held late January/early February. Please contact your student's school for specific testing dates. The Highly Capable Office will not have that information.

Eligibility results for Grades 1st, 3rd & 5th will be sent out via Parent Square in March for services to begin in the 2024-25 school year.

If you would like more information on the testing process, please refer to the Identification page.
