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
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.
