How do you move your current Highly Capable Program (HCP) to meet the new requirements?

Chapter 28A.185.020 RCW

The legislature finds that, for highly capable students, access to accelerated learning and enhanced instruction is access to a basic education. There are multiple definitions of highly capable, from intellectual to academic to artistic.

WAC 392-170-035/BISD  Definition of Highly Capable Students

As used in this chapter, highly capable students are students who perform or show potential for performing at significantly advanced academic levelswhen compared with others of their age, experiences, or environments.

Outstanding abilities are seen within students' general intellectual aptitudes, specific academic abilities, and/or creative productivities within a specific domain.

These students are present not only in the general populace, but are present within all protected classes according to Chapters 28A.640 and 28A.642 RCW.

Chapter 28A.185.020 RCW

The research literature strongly supports using multiple criteria to identify highly capable students, and therefore, the legislature does not intend to prescribe a single method.

Instead, the legislature intends to allocate funding based on two and three hundred fourteen one-thousandths percent (2.314%) of each school district's population-

and authorize school districts to identify through the use of multiple, objective criteria those students most highly capable and eligible to receive accelerated learning and enhanced instructionin the program offered by the district
