Riverview School District is now accepting nominations for students to be assessed for the district’s Highly Capable Services programs, including the grades 2-5 Program for the Academically Talented (PAT) for the 2018-19 school year.

All first grade students will be screened in January to determine their eligibility, so no students in kindergarten or first grade need to be nominated. Parents can opt-out of the screening for their children by completing the opt-out form.

Parents who want to enter their older children, grades 2 to 11 in the program, can pick up a nomination form in the school office. Applications must be returned by Friday, Dec. 15. No late nominations or outside test scores will be accepted.

Elementary students who meet the eligibility criteria will be invited to take the full Cognitive Abilities Test in February.

The goal for Highly Capable Services is to support and provide appropriate academic challenges to students with extraordinary ability in English/language arts or math.
