Highly Capable Services and Program for the Academically Talented

The Riverview School District will be accepting nominations [Click HERE for the English form or HERE for the Spanish form] for assessing students for Highly Capable Services, including the Grades 2 – 5 Program for the Academically Talented (PAT) for the next school year. All first grade students will be screened in January to determine their eligibility, so no first or kindergarten students need to be nominated.

Parents can opt out of the Highly Capable screening for their children by completing the opt-out form [Click HERE for the English form or HERE for the Spanish form]. This form is included with the screening letter and available on the Highly Capable Programs webpage.

All parents who wish to refer their 2nd through 11th grade children may submit a nomination form, to be turned in by April 9. Nomination forms are available from school offices, teachers, and on the Highly Capable Programs webpage. No late nominations or outside (private) test scores will be accepted. Families of nominated students will receive further information about assessment for identification.

The goal for Highly Capable Services is to support and provide appropriate academic challenges to students with extraordinary ability in English/Language Arts or Math.
