1/10/2020 IOWA Assessment Update

Most Schools have completed the IOWA assessment testing and makeup testing for students who met the screening threshold score. In order to test as many eligible students as possible, the HiCap department scheduled many makeup days for students who missed the testing days at their school. If a student missed the testing and makeup days for their school but would still like to be considered for highly capable placement, a portfolio review can be performed for that student. Parents will need to fill out the portfolio review form and submit the required documents to the HiCap department before the date listed on the assessment results letter that will be sent home by either backpack mail or through US Postal Service at the end of January 2020. Please see the Portfolio Review page for further details.
