    Core Courses – Rising sixth grade students will be placed in their four core courses and any support services that are received (IEP, 504, ESL). These courses include 6th grade English/Language Arts (ELA), Social Studies, Science and Math. Students will be placed in either 6th Grade Math OR Math 6 Plus. Your child’s math course placement is listed below. Math placement guidelines can be found at www.wcpss.net/msmath . Compacted Math is not a placement or waiver option during the Registration process. This decision can only be made at the Middle School. Students who seek this level of math acceleration must apply for Single Subject Acceleration (SSA). Information on SSA can be found on the Lacy website.


    Math Placement Waivers (optional) – If you wish to submit a waiver for your child to take a math course, higher or lower than they are recommended to take, you must submit a 2022-2023 Middle School Math Placement Parent Waiver Form to Mrs. Miller by Tuesday, April 5. These forms may be found on the Lacy Website.


    Elective Courses – Your child will be able to select elective courses. These courses are not required subject areas like reading and math, but instead are optional courses that may be of interest to your child. Elective options and descriptions can be found on www.wcpss.net/rising6th by selecting the assigned middle school. An elective worksheet is included for you and your child to complete to prepare for online registration at school. Ms. Bunn and school staff will work with students in small groups using

    their completed elective worksheets to register in Powerschools.
