School Information Evenings 2017
You may book an evening date prior to receiving an acceptance letter from advanced learning!
Please note that if your child is eligible for HCC, you must still apply for admission during the District Open Enrollment time period.
The District Open Enrollment is Monday, February 13, 2017 - Friday, February 24, 2017.
Application and Testing
Current and prospective students participate in a district assessment to determine their eligibility for the Highly Capable Cohort (HCC).
Key application and testing steps and dates are:
- Student Nomination/Parent Permission Form due Early October
- Teacher Input Form due Early October
- Test Date Notification E-Mailed from District by Mid-November
- Cognitive Testing Administered late October through Mid-December
- Achievement Testing Administered (if needed) through January

Eligible HCC students wishing to enroll in the program must request Cascadia Elementary or Decatur Elementary during the Open Enrollment Period for School Choice Assignment.

If your child has tested into the HCC program and your reference elementary school is:
- Bryant Elementary

then Decatur Elementary would be your assigned school if you request admission into HCC during the open enrollment period.
If your child has tested into the HCC program and your home address is:
- North of the ship canal bridge (excluding Bryant/Laurelhurst/Sand Point/View Ridge/Wedgwood Elementary)

Advance reservations for the Information Evenings are required and are for adults only. Please sign up for an evening if you have kindergarten through 4th grade students who you think will qualify for HCC. These events are extremely large, so we ask that you not attend tours if your students are younger than kindergarten age. This program will only be in the Lincoln building until June 2017.
