APP Advisory Committee Announcements

From Fairmount Park Elementary’s APP Advisory Committee Representative, Jennie Wyatt:

Welcome to a new school year! We wanted to let you know about a few items as we launch into this 2014-15 year.

First, a reminder that the deadline to apply  for Advanced Learning Test is October 2. The forms can be found here:

Second, you have already seen or heard about the name change for APP.  The Advanced Learning Office announced at the beginning of September that the Accelerated Progress Program will now be called the Highly Capable Cohort. The name change mirrors the State’s terminology for Highly Capable Services. The HCC refers specifically to the students who are both qualified for highly capable services and enrolled at specific sites. These changes are explained here:
As a result, the APP Advisory Committee will also undergo a name change to the Highly Capable Services Advisory Committee, or HSC AC. You will see that change reflected in future communications.
Third, the meeting schedule for the Advisory Committee is as follows (although locations may be subject to change):
Tuesday, October 7, 6:30-8:30 pm, Garfield High School Library
