I'm going to put a plug out for Shakspeare in the Park: http://greenstage.org/shakespeare-in-the-park/
The productions are one of my favorite parts of summer and a fun way to introduce kids to Shakespeare.
I'm also getting close to trying out the new commenting system. See: http://discussapp.blogspot.com/2016/07/july-open-thread.html. I'd still like more folks to give it a try and provide feedback before I move to a more extensive roll out.
I made an inquiry and heard back from OSPI
"While there is a requirement for federally-funded programs (such as Title I) to provide services to approved private schools, there is no such requirement for Highly Capable Programs. RCW 28A.150.220, Basic Education, speaks to what districts are to provide for "students enrolled in grades one through twelve..."
Some districts choose to include private and homeschooled students in their identification process. However, students not enrolled in the district do not generate Highly Capable apportionment. The district's responsibility under Basic Education is to provide for enrolled students."
But Status Quo remains for Seattle
"We have always tested non-enrolled residents of Seattle during our annual identification process. Since they are not covered under the HCP grant funds, we charge $140 to help defray some of the costs of identifying such students."
Math For Love
I just received the summer newsletter from Math For Love. Two items seemed of interest.
