High Math (4th and 5th grade only)
At grades 4 and 5, students who demonstrate high math achievement and behaviors are identified for differentiated math programming which takes place in a self-contained regular education class. Students identified for this class are grouped based on their need for a deeper exploration of grade level standards. High math classes DO NOT skip grade level standards.
Identification for this class is based on the following criteria:
Demonstration of consistently high math achievement through NWEA-MAP assessments
PARCC assessment results
Demonstration of higher order math behaviors as measured by a Teacher Checklist of Observed Math Behaviors
Discussions regarding high math placement should be had with the building principal.
