La Conner School District Highly Capable Program Referral Process
La Conner School District will be accepting referrals through March 24, 2017 for students interested in participating in Highly Capable services for the 2017-18 school year. Others may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
If you wish to refer a student to be considered for Highly Capable services, please complete this referral form. You may also download and print the referral form (PDF Version, MS Word Version, Spanish Version (PDF) (MS Word)). Completed forms may be turned into any of the school administrative assistants.
Referred students will need to take the Cognitive Aptitudes Test (CogAT) to be considered. The CogAT will be administered at a level one grade level above the student's current grade. CogAT assessments will be administered in the month of May, during school the school day, with parental permission only.
Students currently enrolled in the Highly Capable/Highly Motivated program do not need to reapply, unless specifically requested to do so.
Please note that service options for qualified Highly Capable students may be limited in the future, due to budgetary constraints.
If you have any questions regarding the referral and selection process, or the Highly Capable/Highly Motivated program at La Conner School District, please contact Beth Clothier, Program Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
