Translated Advanced Learning Referrals

For families needing translated referral forms, students can be referred on fillable PDF documents, or by paper form.

These translated documents are also available, printed, at every elementary school in the school office. Translated documents can be scanned and emailed to Margaret Kawasaki at: or mailed to:

Advanced Learning PO Box 34165, Mail Stop 32-936 Seattle, WA 98124

Completing a paper referral is enough to complete the referral process. If a parent completes a paper form, the student does not need to be referred on the Source.
