SKSD accepting Highly Capable Program referrals

Deadline for referrals is Jan. 18.

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.

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

For more information about the program or to make a referral, visit the South Kitsap School District website at www.skschools.org. The program is listed under “Student Center,” then “Highly Capable Services.” Referral forms are available on the website and at each school office.
