Highly Capable Program Referrals Open December 3 through January 11

Highly Capable Program
Referrals open December 3 through January 11


The Auburn School District is now accepting referrals for the 2019-2020 Highly Capable Program, a program that serves exceptionally intelligent, intellectually gifted students whose needs may not be easily met in the general setting. Once a student is identified as highly capable, he/she is entitled to Highly Capable program services from the date of eligibility through graduation; annual testing is not required.  Nominations close January 11, 2019.

Screening considers nominees who are currently enrolled in grades kindergarten through eleven. Selection for highly capable programs reflects state guidelines for identifying intellectually gifted students. If you feel your child should participate in further testing, but doesn’t meet screening criteria, you may nominate your child.  Nomination materials are available by selecting Highly Capable from the For Families menu of the Auburn School District website, as well as from all school counseling offices.

Direct questions to your child’s school counselor or to:
