This manual, a product of the Washington State Early Entrance Identification Committee, was designed to offer technical assistance to the school districts of Washington State. Its primary objective is to provide information to those districts seeking assistance in the identification of the exceptionally able child who does not meet the age criteria for entry into a kindergarten program. Included in the manual are a list of commonly asked questions regarding early entrance identification programs, recommendations for avoiding discriminatory practices, a list of available screening devices (in a matrix form), and samples of early entrance policies and procedures from districts with existing programs. Copies of sample procedures and policies are appended. (Author/MP)
