Open Enrollment

EXIT

At end of first nine weeks or semester, all students below 70 WILL be removed from Pre-AP course.

Parents and staff may recommend a student exit if semester average is 70-74.

A written action plan will be developed by the teacher for students with an average of 70-74 who remain            in the Pre- AP course.

 

Algebra I

Strong 6th grade Pre-AP students may choose to take an Algebra I entrance exam in Spring 2018 that would allow them to take Algebra I Pre-AP in the 2018-19 school year as a 7th grade student. The following considerations should be observed:

     Students must make an 80% or better on the Algebra I placement exam, which covers standards from 7th and 8th grade mathematics.

     Students who meet this requirement will take summer or other out of school time courses to show mastery of 7th and 8th grade mathematics.
