Single Subject Acceleration 2017-18

Single Subject Acceleration (SSA)
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 a course without having taken the course.  For example, a parent could nominate his/her child to skip a grade level of content in either Language Arts OR Mathematics.
Please look for this flyer to come home in your child's Friday folder this week. If you have more questions, please visit the WCPSS SSA Website and speak to Ms. Hanley, our AIG Teacher.  
Nomination Window for Conn: April 6-April 26
