Tekoa School District Highly Capable Program Services


Highly capable students are 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 productivity within a specific domain. 


Any parent/guardian may refer his/her child for a highly capable assessment. Parents should complete the Parent Referral Form, which includes Authorization for Testing available at this link: Parent & Teacher Referral Form and in schools. In addition, teachers or other adults may nominate a student. 


Tekoa School District provides a variety of appropriate services to students who qualify to participate in the Highly Capable Program. Once services are started, a continuum of services is provided to identified students in grades K-12. 


For elementary grades, the continuum of services includes:

 For secondary grades, the continuum of services includes:
