Math Acceleration

Math Acceleration Process

"Accelerated" Pathway (2-year acceleration): Starting in 3rd grade, students may be considered for math acceleration. Additional tests will be administered to selected students, and their eligibility will be determined by the district's Math Acceleration Workgroup. If students are determined to be eligible to accelerate, they will make a mid-year transition to an above-grade-level math classroom and begin receiving small-group support by an Advanced Learning Department staff member. 
"Compacted" Pathway (1-year acceleration): Starting in 6th grade, students may be selected to participate in the district's Compacted Pathway, which features a one-year acceleration through a process known as curriculum compacting. Students are selected based on their in-class performance, standardized test scores, and classroom dispositions.
