I notice in the course offerings two important items:
- We are not offering Integrated Math.
- We are offering an Algebra 1 Strategic class.
The Strategic class requires concurrent enrollment in Algebra 1 and is determined by low CST results. Is this then only for repeaters? (In other words, it’s not for freshman Algebra 1 students who did bad in 8th grade.)
Do we have a plan for the students who marginally pass Algebra 1 as freshmen? It looks as if they go into Geometry, followed by Algebra 1. So we’ll have students in Algebra II CP have gotten a D- in Algebra 1 and another D- in Geometry.
Any alternatives to this? Is this an individual decision, made in the Counseling office?
