Single Subject Acceleration

  • Update - March 1, 2017:

    Single Subject Acceleration is the practice of assigning a student to a higher-grade level than is typical, given the student's age, for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities in either Language Arts or Mathematics.

    Parents may nominate students for this accelerative practice only within specified nomination windows. SSA testing will occur prior to the end of this school year during the designated testing windows for consideration of SSA for the 2017-2018 School Year.

Single Subject Acceleration (SSA) is the practice of assigning a student to a higher-grade level than is typical, given the student's age, for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities.

SSA is an accelerative practice that allows students to show mastery of the content of an elementary or middle school course without having taken the course. A parent may nominate his/her child to skip a grade level of content in either Language Arts OR Mathematics.
