Appeals Process

All appeals must be initiated within one month of notification that the student was not selected for the Highly Capable Program. Students, parents, teachers and community members may appeal selection decisions. Requests to change the service delivery model for a student who has already been selected is a separate process. To address concerns about placement or service delivery for a student who is already identified, please work with school staff and then the Highly Capable Program coordinator.

Appeals must be made using the appeals form on the school district website. Additional information may be attached.
Within 10 working days of the appeal deadline (30 days from parent notification + 10 days), the coordinator will respond in writing providing the decision and supporting data. The coordinator may consult members of the multi-disciplinary selection committee and/or other school staff.

The appeals decisions are final.  Students may be referred and re-screened in the following calendar year referral window.
