Ridgefield School District accepting referrals for Highly Capable Program


Ridgefield School District’s Highly Capable Program for the 2020-21 school year is currently accepting referrals for testing, according to a news release.

Anyone is allowed to refer a student including teachers, parents and other students, as well as community members. The program’s services are intended to address the needs of highly capable students in grades K-12, the release stated. Each school in the district has copies of the “K-12 Highly Capable Program Overview,” which explains the program’s goals, identification process, service model and testing schedule.

Students in first through seventh grade will be tested in March and April for potential placement in the upcoming school year, the release stated. Kindergarteners will be tested in April as well. Once the testing date has been placed, students cannot be rescheduled unless there’s an urgent situation like a family emergency or illness.

Referrals are due by Feb. 5, 2021 and can be found online at  tinyurl.com/yc9tnsts. They can also be emailed to roger.fish er@ridgefieldsd.org or mailed to Roger Fisher, Highly Capable Program Coordinator, Ridgefield School District, 510 Pioneer St., Ridgefield, Washington, 98642.
