  • Nominations being accepted for district's Highly Capable Program. Beginning in the 2014-2015 school year the Grandview School District began offering a new program targeting students who are performing, or show potential to perform, at significantly advanced academic levels. The Highly Capable Program will be offered at every school in the district for students in grades kindergarten through 12. In order to take part in the program students must first be nominated by parents, teachers, administrators or community members. The application outlines the criteria required to be considered for the highly capable testing. A building team reviews the applications and the CogAT assessment is completed on those students who meet that criteria. Students who score in the 97th percentile or higher will be admitted into the Highly Capable Program the following school year. The district will be accepting nominations for the program through Feb. 27, 2015. Click here for more information about the program and to get a printable copy of the nomination form. The form can also be picked up at the District office. For information and a nomination form in Spanish click here. Teachers who are interested in learning more about the program or the nomination process can click here for more information.
