Annual notice referrals for highly capable program

Testing referrals for participation in the Ridgefield School District’s Highly Capable Program for the 2023-24 school year are currently being accepted. Anyone may refer a student including parents, teachers, other students, and members of the community. Highly Capable Program services are designed to address the needs of highly capable students in grades K-12. Each district school has copies of the “K-12 Highly Capable Program Overview” explaining the program goals, identification process, service model, and the schedule for testing. Referral forms are available online on the RSD's Highly Capable Program webpage. You can also download the Referral Form here

Students in grades 1 through 7 will be tested in March/April for possible placement in the
upcoming school year. Kindergarten students will be tested in April. Once your student has been scheduled, the date will not be rescheduled except for a true family emergency or illness.
Referrals must be returned no later than February 3, 2023. You may email completed referral forms to or mail completed forms to:
