• Math Pathways - Ensuring Success 

     

    Comprehensive readiness is essential to academic achievement and is especially important when considering placement in an above-grade-level math class. The district relies on research-based guidance to determine, with some certainty, if a student will be able to maintain high levels of math achievement in an above grade-level setting and consistently demonstrate adequate academic growth on benchmark assessments following placement. 

     

    Multiple Opportunities to Advance Academically - Jumping Pathways

     

    Recognizing that students may develop the content knowledge, academic skills, behaviors, and learning strategies necessary for above-grade-level math instruction at different times, the district screens all students and evaluates potential candidates for above-grade-level math placement each year through the process known as “Jumping Pathways”. 

     

    Evaluation Process  - The linked Math Placement Rubrics serve as the screening instrument for the district’s above-grade-level math placement evaluation process. The rubrics were developed to capture the performance data and indicators successful accelerated math candidates typically achieve. 

     

    Scenarios - The linked scenarios describe the district’s accelerated math placement process and highlight the skills, behaviors and attributes students must possess to be placed in an above-grade-level math class.
