Single Subject Acceleration

  • PLEASE NOTE THAT THE NOMINATION WINDOW FOR THE 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR IS CLOSED.

    THE SSA NOMINATION WINDOW FOR THE 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR WILL OPEN IN SPRING 2020

    SSA allows students to show mastery of content in select elementary or middle school courses. Students who prove mastery do not have to take the course and may move on to the next level.  

    Parents may nominate their child to skip a grade level of content in either English Language Arts or mathematics.

    Students are nominated for SSA by their parents or guardians. They will be assessed at their school based upon grade level. Depending on grade level and subject, this could include a multiple-choice test and/or a writing sample.  Detailed assessment information and qualifying criteria may be located at this link.

    Parents may nominate students for this accelerative practice ONLY within specified windows.  Nomination forms for the 2020-2021 school year may be obtained on this page or in the front office beginning in the Spring of 2020.  Nominations for the 2020-2021 school year may be submitted in Spring 2020, during the nomination window only.  Parents/guardians will receive a confirmation e-mail from Ms. Owens once their child's nomination has been received.  Nominations will not be accepted outside the announced window.  

    Testing for appropriately-nominated students will take place in Spring 2020 following the nomination window.

    Accelerative services for students who qualify begin at the start of the following school year.

    Students who do not meet the criteria, who transfer to WCPSS after the testing window, or who are nominated after the nomination window has closed will not be accelerated.
