Welcome back to school! I look forward to working with you this year! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at any time.
SOME STUDENTS MAY QUALIFY TO ADVANCE A COURSE LEVEL
Students meeting qualifying criteria in grades K‐7 can take advanced academic content in mathematics or English Language Arts through Single Subject Acceleration (SSA). This ensures opportunities for appropriate levels of academic challenge.
Does My Child Qualify?
SSA allows students to show mastery of content in select elementary or middle school courses. Students who prove mastery do not have to take the course and may move on to the next level.
Parents may nominate their child to skip a grade level of content in either English Language Arts or mathematics.
Students are nominated for SSA by their parents or guardians. They will be assessed at their school based upon grade level. Depending on grade level and subject, this could include a multiple-choice test and/or a writing sample. Your school will have more specific information about this process once your child is nominated.
Nominating Your Child
We accept SSA nominations during specific times of spring semester for the following school year. Track 4's nomination window is May 5 - 18.
The Single Subject Acceleration nomination form is due to your child’s school before final dismissal time on the last day of the nomination window.
For more information regarding SSA and the nomination process, please contact Jennifer Davis, email@example.com.
Parents of elementary and middle school students - find out about opportunities for accelerated learning and subject placement for your child for the 2017-18 school year!
We are hosting information sessions in schools around Wake County in February and March. Take a look and attend a session at a time and place convenient for you.
