    Vashon Island School District shall offer appropriate instructional services to address the unique needs of the most highly capable students of school age within the State funding allocation. Our framework for highly capable services embraces the following objectives.

    • Expansion of academic attainment and intellectual skill;
    • Stimulation of intellectual curiosity, independence and responsibility;
    • Acceleration of specific content to meet student learning needs; and
    • Development of a positive attitude toward self and others.

    The identification of highly capable students shall not violate federal and state civil rights laws, shall be based on professional judgment as to which students will benefit the most from inclusion in the district's program; and shall be based on an identification system that determines which students are the most highly capable.
