HiCap Legislative Advocacy Survey
Please tell us a little about yourself so we can reach you in the future (optional)

First Name:
Last Name:
Email Address:
School District:


Are you willing to reach out to a legislator in your area this winter, to advocate for more equitable identification methods for HiCap students? 

This could be an email, a phone call, or an in person meeting. We would provide you advocacy materials to share that would support better HiCap identification of students of color, english language learners, low-income students, and students with learning and other disabilities (2e).

No, this isn't something I can do.
Maybe, I'm nervous about this, but can probably help if I get some extra support.
Yes, I can contact whichever legislator(s) you need, just tell me who.
Yes, I would be willing to reach out to these specific legislator(s) - please comment below

Will you be able to attend Gifted Ed Day in Olympia this year?  It will be held on February 8, 2018, with a presentation from 9am - 10:30am, and opportunities to advocate on campus until mid-afternoon.

Even if you can't arrive at 9:00 am, it's still very useful to attend - this is a prime opportunity to meet with legislators in person, perhaps in partnership with other Coalition representatives who will be there that day.
No, I can't attend Gifted Ed Day this year.
Maybe, it's a possibility that I could get there.
Yes, I can go to Gifted Ed Day in Olympia on February 8.

What information do you know about any of your Legislators (Representatives or Senator) that might be useful for us to know? Any tidbits you can share are very, very helpful. There are a lot of legislators across our 49 districts to get to know...please help us!

Please be sure to include the legislator's NAME with any comments :)

For example:
- Does this legislator have HiCap kids?
- Does this legislator know anything about HiCap? 
- Has this legislator been a teacher, psychologist, social worker, etc?
- Is this legislator supportive of HiCap programs?
- Is this legislator against HiCap programs?
- Would this legislator be a good candidate for us to reach out to educate about HiCap?
- Does this legislator have particular priorities or "pet peeves" we should know about?
