A student may be nominated for the high ability program by parent/guardian, teacher, peer, the student, or any other person familiar with the student’s abilities, potential or performance. Nomination forms are available in the office of each school, by contacting the High Ability District Coordinator, or on the district web page.
Nomination forms should be completed and returned to the High Ability District Coordinator. Once a student has been nominated, the HIgh Ability District Coordinator will gather from existing assessments, parent/guardian, teacher, portfolio, and determine if further testing is needed.
The data will be taken to the district-level Identification Committee to determine if the student should be identified as high ability and what services the student should receive.
