Letter from Director of STEAM in regards to placement process (dated 11/13/17)


We have carefully developed criteria for student enrollment in our district’s middle school math courses.  This placement is based on the student's performance on standardized and nonstandardized assessments, i.e., the Orleans-Hanna Algebra Prognosis Math Test, classroom unit assessments and benchmark/diagnostic assessments, as well as teacher recommendation.
