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”.
