Highly Capable Program for Second Grade Students
Letters are being sent home with second grade students this week with information about the Highly Capable Program. The letter has also been posted on the website and can be found here: http://issaquah.wednet.edu/docs/default-source/district/academics/gifted/15-16/second-grade-hcap-parent-letter-2016.pdf?sfvrsn=2
The letter details the process that will be used to identify Issaquah’s “most highly capable” second graders. This process includes the administration of the Iowa Achievement Test, the CogAT (Cognitive Abilities Test), and the TTCT (Torrance Test of Creative Thinking) in your child’s second grade classroom. The administration window for these tests is January 9th through March 15th, exact dates and times vary by classroom.
Students who are identified as “most highly capable” will be invited to enter the Highly Capable Program with services through MERLIN or SAGE for next school year.
