Dec. 7 is deadline for Aspire applications



Children in second through seventh grades living in the Battle Ground Public Schools boundaries can be tested for entry into the district’s Aspire program for highly capable students.

Qualifying students will enter the program in the 2013-2014 school year. Aspire is designed for students in third through eighth grades who have superior intellectual ability, as demonstrated by the multiple criteria specified by the state.

Testing will be in January and February. Parents should pick up the referral form in their school office or on the district’s website. Parents who submit the referral forms by Dec. 7 will be notified by mail of the testing dates. For more information about the Aspire program, call 360-885-5429.
