Highly Capable Program Nominations 
Posted on 10/20/2023

Clover Park School District (CPSD) will be accepting nominations for its Highly Capable Program between Oct. 24 and Dec. 15 for the 2024-25 school year. Students may be nominated by a parent, teacher, community member or themselves.

Electronic forms are available in English and Spanish and may be accessed by clicking the following form, 2023-2024 Highly Capable Nomination Form. To request a blank nomination form, please visit your school’s main office. All forms and supporting documentation must be received by Dec. 15.

Student Identification

It is the mission of CPSD to provide all students with appropriate educational programs to meet their academic and social-emotional needs. Our priority is to match students with the most appropriate service. In alignment with this priority and the current barriers to our standard processes, there will be less emphasis on standardized testing measures as a tool for identifying and placing students.

All students have the opportunity to receive differentiated instruction in alignment with their academic ability and potential.


Possible outcomes of a student nomination may include:

  • Level I differentiated instruction in the regular educational program
  • Level II, III or IV Highly Capable Program services

Students already identified to receive Highly Capable Program services will be reviewed to ensure they are receiving the most appropriate services the following school year. Families of students who may move between levels of service will receive communication from the district office regarding potential changes.
