    After Labor Day

    Is when I'm planning to start pulling ours. We start school on August 27, and the next Monday is Labor Day. My Tuesday class will start the next day. I felt this gave them a week to get settled in, before they started coming.

    I will be testing students who were referred at the end of the year before school starts. I'm suggesting that principals go ahead and cluster them into the class with the already identified students "just in case." Any new students are automatically placed in our program for 60 days if they have proof of acceptance from their previous school. After that, we will be testing once per grading period, and any new students will begin at the beginning of the next grading period. We accept referrals year round, and test every grading period.

    This is just K-4; from that point on they are in honors classes all day.
