Grade 6 Identification
Services for Current Grade 6 HiCap Students
Sixth-grade students who were previously identified for HiCap in a lower grade level will receive services through the elementary school programs (ACE or Odyssey).
Universal HiCap Screening for All Grade 6 Students
All sixth-grade students will be universally screened for HiCap services by completing the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) online between March 29 and April 30, 2021.
Students who meet the established screener criteria in combination with other achievement data will be considered for placement on the continuum of services within the Highly Capable Program.
If your student currently receives HiCap services in KSD, participation in the HiCap screening process will not result in the ending or removal from receiving services.
