PORT ORCHARD — Referrals are being accepted for South Kitsap School District’s Highly Capable Services program from Dec. 3 through Jan. 21.

“Our goal is to provide a learning environment where every capable student is provided every opportunity to challenge their intellectual, social and emotional growth,” said Amy Miller, SKSD spokeswoman.

Students in grades K-11 who are enrolled in the South Kitsap School District are eligible for referral to get assessed for services, Miller said. She said second- and fifth-grade students will be administered the first phase of testing in their regular classrooms, so a separate referral is not required. Referrals may be submitted by teachers, other school staff, parents, students, and members of the community.

Referral forms should be completed via the district’s Skyward Family Access portal. Access will be available starting Dec. 3. Those without Skyward Family Access should contact the Highly Capable Services office at 360-874-6300.

Those seeking more information about the program can access the Highly Capable Services program page at programs. They also can call the program for information.

The deadline for accepting referrals is Friday, Jan. 21. Testing conducted during the 2021-2022 school year is for services starting in the fall of 2022.
