At this point, it might be helpful to examine the Highly Capable Program (HCP) Handbook to examine documents that have been collected and serve as examples of forms that could be used by School Districts in their implementation of the law regarding ”Annual Notifications” and “Referral Forms”. The handbook can be found at this website or in the Resource section of this module.

After examining these documents, consider the following:
1.When comparing your annual notifications and referral process communications with those in the handbook, what changes would you make in notifying families, educators, students, and community members about these procedures?
2.You also might run a search of other school districts in the state of Washington to explore how they communicate with members of their local and school community about these procedures. What have you found that might be useful to you?
