  • Single Subject Acceleration

    The Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) Board of Education defines acceleration as allowing a student to move through traditional educational organizations more rapidly, based on readiness and motivation. 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 in either Math or English/language arts.   SSA is an accelerative practice that allows students to show mastery of content of select elementary or middle school courses without having taken the course.

    During specified nomination windows, parents or teachers can nominate students to skip a grade level of content in either English Language Arts OR Mathematics.  Students may only be nominated and assessed for SSA in ONE subject area. To learn more about the program and the nomination window, find information here.

  • Science EOG Information 

     We want to share a resource with you regarding the science EOG. The resource highlights the four major unifying themes (Force & Motion, Weather, Ecosystems, and Human Body Systems) that are studied in 5th grade and tested on the EOG. The resource includes links to StudyJams, which may have been viewed in class, but serve as a great resource for review - especially for concepts introduced earlier in the school year! Each StudyJams video or slideshow includes a "Test Yourself" feature which can also give students practice with answering multiple choice questions.
    The parent information page is available in English: goo.gl/BfcLst
    and it's available in Spanish as well: goo.gl/Zig0K6
