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 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.
     
     
  • Testing for SSA will occur in May and Wake County has planned several parent meetings throughout the district to provide information.  

    There is a parent meeting on March 30th at 6pm specific to SSA at Rolesville. Please plan on joining us!  If you have any other questions, please contact our SSA liaison, Mrs. Barbour  jbarbour@wcpss.net.
