Superintendent's Letter

  • September 2017

    Dear Students, Parents and Community Members, I know that the teachers’ strike caused many concerns. I am relieved to start school and be back focused on teaching and learning. I am a former teacher and building principal, and children are my top priority. The Board and I have bargained and negotiated with the teachers’ union in good faith and we feel the settlement provides for a fair contract. Under my recommendation, the Board of Directors approved the agreement at a special board meeting, Tuesday, Sept. 5, 2017.

  • Highly Capable Identification Process

    Annual Notification WAC 392-170-042

    Referrals for consideration of participation in San Juan Island School District’s Highly Capable Program for the 2017-18 school year are currently being requested. Anyone may refer a student including parents, teachers, other students, and members of the community.


    Highly Capable Services are designed to address the unique needs of highly capable students in grades K-12. Students identified as highly capable of high academic and intellectual ability will have an opportunity to explore concepts in greater depth and further develop their thinking and creativity. There will be a continuum of service options for students depending on their grade level.


    Referrals will be accepted for currently enrolled students in grades K-12 from May 15 to October 31, 2017. Referrals will be accepted from parents, teachers, and community members for initial screening for participation in the Highly Capable Program.


    To participate in the program, students must meet very rigorous criteria and be selected by their school’s Student Support Team which includes an administrator, teachers, and the school psychologist.


    Highly Capable Identification Process:

    1. Referrals accepted: May 15 to October 31, 2017. Anyone interested in referring a student to be assessed for program eligibility can download the district referral form from the San Juan Island School District’s website. Forms will also be available at the elementary, middle, and high school offices.
    2. Please return completed referral forms to the elementary, middle, or high school office where the student is enrolled.
    3. Referrals will be screened by each school’s Student Support Team composed of teachers, counselors/psychologists, and administrators using multiple objective criteria in accordance to WAC 391-170-045.
    4. Cognitive Testing: The Student Support Team will identify students for additional cognitive testing who demonstrate evidence supporting highly qualified characteristics.
    5. Student Support Team members will analyze achievement and cognitive student data to determine placement.
    6. Letters will be mailed to parents announcing the team’s decision for eligibility.

    If you have questions please contact the Highly Capable Program Coordinator, Jerry Ball, 360-378-3292 or the District Office 360-378-4133.
