Non-Northshore Students

Non-Northshore Students include private school students, homeschool students, and all other students including students from out of state or from another public school district who are not currently enrolled in Northshore School District. 

Northshore School District will test students who are enrolled prior to the mid-October cutoff date and non-NSD students who Apply for testing and meet the criteria listed under the Application to Test below. If you enroll your student in the fall prior to the October cutoff date, they will follow the process described on our Eligibility Overview page. The Fall screening and assessment process is part of the Eligibility plan for identifying students for services to be provided the following school year.

If your student enrolls after the mid-October cutoff date, they have the option of submitting records from their previous school of their cognitive ability and academic achievement to our department. This is known as a Transfer of Highly Capable Designation. Transfers are reviewed periodically year round.

Screening and assessment dates for non-enrolled students who did not test in January 2024 will be held in August 2024.

Dates and times have not yet been finalized. Students who have filled out the Application to test below will be contacted a week or so before testing dates to schedule a time.
