    Highly Capable Programming Intervention/Exit Procedures 

    Parents/guardians and staff members in the Accelerated Programs department have the option to initiate an intervention team meeting when it is deemed necessary to help support students both academically and social-emotionally in the program that is providing services to the student. 

    1. School Level Intervention Team (i.e., SIT, Guidance, IEP Team Mtg, 504 Team Mtg, Pre‐referral, etc.…) 
      • A goal setting meeting is held between the parent, teacher, and appropriate school-based staff (as well as the student if appropriate). 
      • The purpose of the meeting will be to: 
        • Discuss strengths of student 
        • Discuss areas of concern 
        • Identify and document measurable goals to address concerns, with a timeline of 4 ‐ 6 weeks. 
        • Notify school principal of goals and timeline. If concerns remain after designated timeline a follow‐up meeting will be held to revise the goals or go on to step 2.   
    2. District Level Intervention Team 
      • A conference will be scheduled between the parent, teacher, building principal, and a representative from LWSD Accelerated Programs Multidisciplinary Selection Committee (MSC). 
      • The purpose of the meeting will be to: 
        • Discuss areas of concern 
        • Identify measurable goals to address concerns with a timeline of 4 ‐ 6 weeks or make a decision to exit the student from current highly capable services placement (complete step 3). 
        • If primary concern is addressed, team can set additional measurable goals as needed (cyclical: return to step 1). 
        • If concerns remain after designated timeline a follow‐up meeting will be held to go on to step 3.   
    3. Change of Service or Exit from Program 
      • A conference will be scheduled between the parent, teacher, building principal, and a representative from LWSD Accelerated Programs Multidisciplinary Selection Committee (MSC). 
      • The purpose of the meeting will be to come to consensus on student placement. 
      • If appropriate, student may be placed in a different level of service: 
        • Pull-Out Quest 
        • K5HC 
        • Differentiation in the general education classroom 
      • If student is exited from current level of programming, consideration can be given for transitioning at the end of the school year when appropriate. 
        • Should the student wish to re‐enter or change determined level of service in the future, the student must apply to the LWSD MSC for re‐entry.
