    Highly Capable Programs Application

    Students may be referred by parents or other individuals, including teachers, other staff, or a member of the community. All LWSD students in first grade will be screened in the fall so referrals for students in that grade will not be accepted. Referrals can be made for students in all other grades K-7 during the application window.

    Individuals making a referral must use the District-provided online referral form. Please submit only one referral per student. The District’s referral process may include screening procedures as allowed by state statute.
