HCP Nominations

  •  Is your student intellectually engaged and highly involved in activities?
  • Is your student not just TOP of the group, but BEYOND the group?
  • Does your student absorb information and then manipulate it?
  • Does your student think creatively to solve problems?
  • Does your student think independently and at times challenge authority?
  • Does your student take risks consistently because he/she wants to know what will happen?

Students who perform two standard deviations above their FWPS peers’ norm on district and state assessments will be considered for the Highly Capable Program. Students who are nominated will be assessed on a cognitive achievement test if their State and District tests are not two standard deviations above the norm.
*Students who are already identified for HCP will keep that designation; it is unnecessary to nominate them.

The 1st-11th grade HCP nomination window will be open from Monday, January 12th, through Monday, January 26th.
