The Selection Committee will meet in March to review results of testing and make recommendations for placement.
By late-April, parents will receive a letter in the mail with the test results and the Committee’s decision about Highly Capable program enrollment for the 2021-22 school year.
The Everett Public Schools, in compliance with the Washington State rules for Highly Capable Programs (WAC 392-170-047), has an appeal process. If you do not agree with the selection decision and you wish to appeal, you will be asked to complete an appeal form.
Please be aware that the selection decision appeal must be based upon one of the following conditions:
- An extraordinary circumstance occurred during testing that may have negatively affected the validity of the testresults (i.e., a traumatic event or an illness preventing the completion of the test).
- A misapplication or miscalculation of the assessment data by the selection committee (i.e., incorrect birthdateor grade level used in calculating the student’s score).
Appeals submitted for reasons other than above will be denied without further consideration. No outside testing will be considered. The decision of the Appeal Review Team is final.
The deadline for submission of appeal is (10) ten work days from the date of notification of score results.
