Overview

  • Shoreline School District currently screens all Kindergarten and 2nd grade students for highly capable program eligibility. In addition, any other student may be assessed annually through our open Winter testing session. Shoreline and Lake Forest Park residents attending private schools may also test during our Winter open testing session.

    New Student Testing: Shoreline will provide an optional highly capable testing opportunity for NEW SHORELINE STUDENTS ONLY in October. This testing opportunity is only for students new to Shoreline schools this fall and did not already participate in hi-cap testing for this school year. 

    2nd grade Testing: Shoreline will screen all 2nd grade students for highly capable program eligibility in the Fall. Information will be sent home with 2nd grade students in September and information will be posted on the website as it becomes available.

    Kindergarten Screening: Shoreline will screen all kindergarten students for the highly capable Talent Development Program in January. Information will be sent home with kindergarten students by December. For more information about dates and opt out information, click here.

    Testing for all Shoreline Students: For all other Shoreline students, Shoreline will provide an optional testing opportunity for highly capable program eligibility in January. Notifications will be sent out district-wide via email and through school newsletters. Parents/Guardians of Shoreline Kindergarten and 2nd grde students do not need to register for testng as all Kindergarten and 2nd grade students are screened for highly capable services. 

    Summer Testing: Shoreline will provide an optional highly capable testing opportunity for NEW SHORELINE STUDENTS ONLY who did not participate in testing during the 19-20 school year. 

Nomination

  • Any staff member, student, parent/guardian, or community member may nominate a Shoreline student for hi-cap evaluation by completing this on-line Nomination Form

    Parents/Guardians wishing to refer their own student for eligibility should instead register their student for Winter hi-cap testing. 

    For students nominated by someone other than their parent/guardian, families will be notified and invited to register their student for Winter testing. 

    All Kindergarten and 2nd grade students are screened/tested for possible highly capable identification and service during the school year. Therefore, there is no nomination process for current Kindergarten and 2nd grade students.

    Please note: A nomination is not required for a student to register for highly capable testing.
