From the District: Advanced Learning apps due Oct 8

From Stephen Martin, Advanced Learning Program Manager

Information about Seattle Public Schools Advanced Learning program can be found at the District’s website.

Application Forms: Advanced Learning is making every effort to “go green” this year by shifting to less paper-intensive systems. Find the application process for testing your student on the District’s website. Submit your electronic form by Oct 8. Testing for Bryant students will be on Sat, Oct 17 at Cascadia at Lincoln.

First-Grade Spectrum: The Advanced Learning office will send to individual schools the list of newly identified first-grade Advanced Learners (Spectrum), including their cognitive area(s) of strength, before the start of school. This will provide an additional data point for teachers to inform grouping decisions and differentiation needs. Students will be listed as having Verbal, Quantitative, or Verbal and Quantitative strength.
