District seeks nominations for ‘highly-capable’ Sequim students

The Sequim School District announces an open nomination process between Jan. 29-Feb. 14 for students currently in grades three-seven who may qualify as candidates for highly capable services.

Nomination forms are available at each school or online at the district Web site www.sequim.k12.wa.us. (Students currently being provided highly capable services will continue to receive services and need not be nominated again.)

Highly capable students, also known as gifted students, perform or show potential for performing at remarkably high levels of accomplishment when compared to others at their age, experience or environment. These students may demonstrate exceptionally high intellectual ability, memory, creativity, curiosity and leadership ability.

The identification procedures used by the Sequim School District have been developed to conform to state guidelines and are used by other Washington school districts.

Questions concerning highly capable services in the Sequim School District may be directed to Bonnie Bless-Boenish, Highly Capable Program coordinator, at 582-3440 or bonnieb@sequim.k12.wa.us.
