PORT ORCHARD — South Kitsap School District is now accepting referrals for its Highly Capable Services program.

“Our goal is to provide a learning environment where every highly capable student is provided multiple opportunities to challenge their intellectual, social and emotional growth,” said Amy Miller, the district’s public information officer.

Students in all grades who are enrolled in the South Kitsap School District are eligible for referral, Miller said in a news release. All second- and fifth-grade students will be administered the first phase of testing in their regular classrooms, so a separate referral is not required.

The deadline for accepting referrals is Jan. 17, 2020. Testing conducted during the 2019-2020 school year is for services starting in fall 2020.

For more information, contact Highly Capable Services at 360-874-7057. Referral forms are completed in Skyward Family Access and will be available starting Dec. 2.
