Identification and Notification


  • Identification and Placement in the Elementary Challenge or Highly Capable Middle School Program


The Multidisciplinary Placement Committee (MPC) reviews the performance data for all students tested and identifies students who require services well beyond the normal learning classroom to be successful. The Committee is assisted by the District Assessment Office to compile and understand the student's assessment profile. Student's academic achievement data, district assessment records, parent and teacher referral information, report cards, plus any other available pertinent information will be reviewed in the process. Students will not be affected in a negative way if there is a missing test score or other data. Teacher referrals will not negatively influence the student.

Notification Process

Summary letters will be emailed the last week of January or the first week of February with the MPC's recommendation for placement of each student. Before students can be placed into the Highly Capable programs, we must have signed parent/guardian permission approving the placement.
