Welcome to South Kitsap School District's
Highly Capable Services Program.
The Washington Administrative
Code (WAC) defines highly capable students as students who perform or show
potential for performing at significantly advanced academic levels when
compared with others of their age, experiences, or environments. Outstanding abilities
are seen within students' general intellectual aptitudes, specific academic
abilities, and/or creative productivities within a specific domain. These
students are present not only in the general populace, but are present within
all protected classes.
South Kitsap School District (SKSD)
is committed to offering unique services for highly
capable students. We recognize that highly capable students
need to work with content and ideas appropriate for their individual abilities,
but also recognize the need for highly capable students to explore
interests in-depth and spend time with their intellectual peers. Highly
capable students thrive in an educational environment which will
increase their involvement and interest in learning.
