Incoming 6th Grade Students

Incoming 6th Grade Students

Course 1 Placement
All students moving into 6th grade will be placed into Grade 6, Course 1 math unless advancement is desired. Course 1 is appropriate for most students and a majority of our students take Course 1 as 6th graders.


Course 2 Placement (Accelerated Pathway) for incoming 6th grade students:
Selecting a math placement above grade level is an important family decision.  To inform this decision, 6th grade students interested in advancing to Course 2 can take the 50 question assessment to demonstrate mastery of the 6th grade, Course 1 math standards. The assessment reflects  6th grade standards. See the CA standards here, which include highlighted standards that are more heavily addressed in the assessment. 
 
The assessment will be given at elementary school sites after school on Wednesday, March 27.  Results will be shared within 3 weeks of the test. 
 
Acceleration is not necessary for students to access college-ready math courses in high school. See SRVUSD Math Pathways for more information.

Incoming 7th and 8th Grade Students- Summer Advancement through MAP

All incoming 7th and 8th grade students will be placed in the next consecutive course unless they wish to accelerate by participating in the summer MAP (Math Advancement Program).
 
Summer MAP advancement courses are online and self-directed using the Edgenuity Curriculum. Algebra 1 is not a MAP option.
 
This MAP presentation offers additional information. REGISTRATION LINK will be available soon.
 
See SRVUSD Math Pathways for more information.

MAP Criteria

  • 100% Completion of the Edgenuity Curriculum with 80% or better final grade and assessments by July 23 at noon.
