As we prepare for the redistricting of our elementary schools and make plans to accommodate the explosive growth taking place in Gig Harbor North, new out-of-district transfer requests will be impacted as follows:
Fillable transfer forms and school district transfer policies are available online at www.psd401.net at the Family scroll down menu under the Transfers tab. Completed forms must be returned to the District office via email, post, or drop-off, no later than April 30th. If you have questions, please call Roxann Tallman at 253-530-1007.
Early learning matters. Studies show that children who have been engaged in early learning opportunities are more likely to grow into healthy, capable, and contributing adults.
We are lucky to have many resources in our community for young children. Whether it is a preschool program, organized sports, or playing at a park, our children have the opportunity to learn and grow in a healthy environment.
Beginning next year, the district Highly Capable program will be changing in several key ways to better meet the needs of these students.
Below are some of the key changes for next year -- this is just a general overview. For more information, the district will be hosting a Highly Capable Program Parent Information Night on Monday night, March 2 at 6PM in the Henderson Bay High School commons.
Some of the concepts behind the changes include the need to provide more comprehensives services across the grades for HiCap students, providing differentiation for students with different highly capable profiles, and providing acceleration for students who are ready for it.
