Single Subject Acceleration
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. Please see the chart below for the SSA nomination and testing windows. More information and the parent nomination form can be found at http://wakeacceleration.weebly.com/. Please email Mandy Hochbrueckner at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding SSA.
New Families coming to Sycamore Creek Elementary for the 2017-2018 School Year - Track Assignments
Sycamore Creek is a multi-track year-round school. When assigning students to a track, we use the information you provide us about track preference along with Wake County Schools' guidelines governing track assignments to do our best to accommodate as many families as possible. We also want to ensure the balance of all tracks and provide the best learning environment for your children, therefore, we are not able to guarantee all first or second choice requests. We will mail new track assignments on or about March 23rd to your address of record. If you have any questions, please contact our data manager, Karen Prosser, at (919) 841-4336.

County Board of Education received Draft 2 of the Enrollment Proposal for the
2017-18 school year.
Since Draft 1
released in September, staff members have gathered parent feedback via an
online forum and at five Board Advisory Council meetings held throughout the
Draft 2 will lead to
another round of public feedback.
A new discussion
thread will be launched online. We will also host a public information session
at Alston Ridge Elementary on Oct. 11. Both meetings will
start at 6:30 p.m.
Next Steps: After receiving feedback on Draft 2, staff
could make further revisions. They then will submit Draft 3, the final draft,
to the board in November. Any additional changes will be made by board
members. A public hearing will be held in November or December.
Final approval is
expected in November or December. Learn more.
