Spring HiCap Testing
Registration for testing for the highly capable program is now open. If you are interested in having your student assessed for highly capable services for next fall, and your student has not yet been screened or tested for hi-cap services this year, you may register them for testing. Please see our testing information page for more information on this test session. You may also access the registration page here. Please note 2nd grade students DO NOT need to register as all Shoreline 2nd graders will be screened for highly capable services at the end of February.
December 2018 Kindergarten and New Student Hi-Cap Testing Results
Test scores and eligibility results will be mailed home the end of January 2019.
Community Collaboration and Engagement
You are valued members to our collaborative team supporting HiCap students. Therfore, we are planning a number of ways in which you can engage and work with the district.
***** Recruiting Parents for Shoreline HiCap Advisory Committee *****
The Shoreline HiCap Advisory Committee will be a new way for Shoreline parents, administrators, and teachers to:
-- Learn together about gifted learners
-- Provide feedback on the implementation of our Hicap program
-- Plan district community events
-- Provide information for HiCap newsletters
We are accepting applications for the committee with the goal of starting in the fall of 2017. We will meet 4 times per year.
If you are a Shoreline public schools parent interested in serving on this committee please go to this online form and submit your name for consideration.
HiCap Magnet Program Transportation
Specific information regarding transportation for students who will attend the Magnet HiCap Program will be communicated in the middle to late August, from the Transportation Department. However, please know that students who attend the magnet program at either Ridgecrest or Meridian Park will be transported from their neighborhood school to the magnet school neighborhood school in the morning and then back in the afternoon.
It is important to know students will need to be able to walk or have transportation to and from their home (or care provider) to their neighborhood school. This means students cannot take the regular neighborhood buses as the bus schedules do not line up.
Recording of Parent Meeting to Learn About HiCap Changes
The Shoreline School Board voted on Monday, March 20, regarding how Highly Capable services will be provided next school year. We held some community meetings recently to provide parents and staff with more information and an opportunity to ask questions about the new options for Highly Capable Services.
A recording of the parent meeting that was held on March 30 is posted below.
