Accelerated Math Courses

Accelerated Math Courses

Grades 4-7
Accelerated Math Courses are offered in grades 4-7. Accelerated courses are "accelerated" in the fact that the material is taught at a faster pace than the on-level courses, and some material from the next grade level may be taught.

Students must qualify each year in order to be placed into accelerated math courses. The following criteria were used to determine placement into accelerated math courses for the 2017-2018 school year:
-Final math grade for the year
-Score on End of Year Test (grades 3-5) or Final Exam (grades 6-7)
-Score on Placement Test
-Teacher Recommendations

*Please note: our goal is to make math placement decisions by June, 2018 for the 2018-2019 school year, which means several of the criteria listed above, including final grade and final exam grade, could be adjusted. Adjusted criteria criteria for next school year are listed here.

Criteria for placement in Accelerated Math for the 2018-2019 school year:
-Math report card grades from marking periods 1-3 (grades 6-7) or trimesters 1-2 (grades 3-5)
-Score on Benchmark Assessments 1, 2 and 3
-Score on Placement Test
-Teacher Recommendations
*Final Report Card grade and End of Year Test grades will be used to confirm placement.

**Students will be notified of their mathematics course placement by the summer either by receiving a letter from the school or their class schedule.
**Students must qualify for accelerated math each school year, by continuing to meet the criteria.  If your child does not qualify for accelerated math this year, it is possible that he/she could qualify for the following year, based on the criteria listed above.

Grades 8-12
To qualify for Algebra I in 8th grade, and any Honors/AP courses at the High School, students must meet the prerequisites set forth in the Program of Studies for each school. *Please note, these documents are updated yearly, and students must meet the prerequisites listed in the Program of Studies for the appropriate school year.
