When schools closed in March, the traditional end-of-year band concerts that showcase a year’s worth of practice and progress were effectively canceled. Rose Hill Middle School (RHMS) Band Instructor, Angela Laulainen got creative during the remote learning period and had her students record their parts at home.
We are currently on a pause in regards to our application and assessment schedule. We will continue to monitor if we will be able to assess in person or using alternate data for eligibility. OSPI is also working with districts throughout the state to help guide the eligibility process this year. Please continue to monitor the Accelerated Programs webpage for updates.
The email@example.com email address continues to be the most efficient method of communication with our department.
