Single Subject Acceleration (SSA)
In March of 2013, a district level committee approved criteria for Single Subject Acceleration (SSA) which allows students to accelerate in English/Language Arts OR Mathematics. The initial criterion was based upon multiple indicators including formal test data and individual student performance data. As a result of student portfolio reviews at the school and district level as part of the SSA process, as well as parental input, the SSA criteria were reexamined by the Central Services Committee and district leadership.
As a result, the district criteria for Single Subject Acceleration (SSA) have been revised for students nominated in spring of 2013. The revised criteria are as follows:
- Score of 80% on the above grade level, district benchmark assessment in Mathematics, OR
- Score of 85% on the above grade level, district benchmark assessment in English/Language Arts. In order to qualify for SSA in either Mathematics OR English/Language Arts, your child must meet this requirement.
Parents or teachers may nominate students for this accelerative practice no later than the first 5 days of school so that testing and any resulting placement may occur before the first ten days of the 2013-2014 school year.
