Student Placement Guidelines and Opportunities

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. Informational parent meetings have been scheduled and are provided on the following links. If you have any questions concerning SSA or Math Sequence, please plan to attend one of the meetings listed.
