Sequim schools accepting referrals for Hi-Cap program

The deadline for Sequim School District’s referrals for students in grades kindergarten-12th grade who may qualify for Highly Capable (Hi-Cap) Program services is Jan. 31.

Anyone may refer students, including — but not limited to — teachers, parents/guardians, staff, friends, students and community members; however, parent/guardian permission will be required for testing.

Referral forms are online at

Paper referral forms are available at each school, the Sequim District Office (503 N. Sequim Ave.), Sequim Boys & Girls Club (400 W. Fir St.) and the Sequim Library (630 N. Sequim Ave.).

Students who were previously identified by Sequim School District will continue to receive services and do not need to re-apply, program organizers note.

Referral forms must be fully completed and received by close of business on Jan. 31; because of time constraints, referrals received after that date will not be considered.

All referrals must be returned to the Highly Capable Program Coordinator Jodi Olson at Sequim Middle School, to school building secretaries or to the school district office.

Parents/guardians of students who are new to the Sequim School District and exhibit gifted characteristics are encouraged to contact Olson.
