    All information and applications for Advanced Learning is now online.

    Families worried their student has not yet been scheduled for testing should wait until Jan. 6 to contact the Advanced Learning office. Students will continue to be scheduled through the first winter break.

    We have communicated the following on our main Testing Page for families:

    If my child’s teacher has received a list of students who need a Teacher Rating form, and my child’s name is missing from the list, should I be concerned? No. Teachers are receiving lists of students who have already been scheduled, but additional names are forwarded as new students are added to the testing schedule. If you have not received a testing date by Wednesday, Jan. 6, please contact us at advlearn@seattleschools.org. Please include your child’s name and student ID number in the email.

    What should I do if I referred my child by the Oct. 8 deadline but he or she hasn't yet been scheduled for testing? No need for concern – not yet. We are continuing to schedule students for testing dates that extend through mid-January. If you have NOT received a testing date by Wednesday, Jan. 6, please contact us at advlearn@seattleschools.org. Please include your child’s name and student ID number in the email.
