The district has a multi-disciplinary selection team which evaluates student assessment profiles using de-identified data and selects students for inclusion in the highly capable program.

The team is composed of a district administrator, psychologist, or other individual who can interpret cognitive and achievement test results, and a teacher will review data that has been collected for each of the referred/nominated students. The  multidisciplinary selection committee is composed of: a special teacher (however, if a special teacher is not available, a classroom teacher shall be appointed); a psychologist or other qualified practitioner with the training to interpret cognitive and achievement test results; a certified coordinator or administrator with the responsibility for the supervision of the district’s highly capable program; and additional professionals, if any, that the district deems desirable.

For information  about the team, please reach out to Betty Gabel at the District Office, 360-954-3015.
