PORT ORCHARD — South Kitsap School District is accepting referrals for its Highly Capable Program for students at all grade levels.

The goal of the program is to provide a learning environment where every highly capable student is provided multiple opportunities to challenge their intellectual, social and emotional growth, district spokeswoman Amy Miller said in a news release Nov. 29.
