Highly capable student nominations open

Sequim School District officials announced an open nomination for students currently in grades three-seven who may qualify as candidates for highly capable services.

The nomination period is open between Jan. 14-28.

Nomination forms are available at each Sequim school or online at the district Web site

Completed forms need to be returned to school offices, classroom teachers or to Bonnie Bless-Boenish, Highly Capable Program coordinator, at the Sequim Community School (220 W. Alder St.) by

4 p.m. Jan. 28.

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.
