Single Subject Acceleration (SSA)

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.
 
Parents who would like their students to skip a grade level of content in either ELA OR mathematics can request testing for one area. The 2020 SSA Testing Request Windows are as follows: 
Track 1 February 24-28, Tracks 2, 3, 4 March 23-27
Testing Requests can only be accepted during these windows.
