Single Subject Acceleration

Procedures for 2013-2014


History of ssa

History of SSA

In March of 2013, a district level committee approved criteria for SSA which allows students to accelerate in English/Language Arts OR Mathematics.

As a result of student portfolio reviews at the school and district level as part of the SSA process, as well as parental input, the SSA criteria were reexamined by the Central Services Committee and district leadership.


Revised criteria

Revised Criteria

  • Score of 80% on the comprehensive, district benchmark assessment for the course/content to be skipped in Mathematics

    OR

  • Score of 85% on the comprehensive, district benchmark assessment for the course/content to be skipped in English/Language Arts/Reading


Specifics of nominations

Specifics of Nominations

AIG Central Services sent letters to students nominated Spring 2013 with qualifying scores on the comprehensive assessment in the course/content to be skipped

Parents or teachers may nominate students for this accelerative practice no later than the first five days of school so that testing and any resulting placement may occur before the first ten days of the 2013-2014 school year.


Process for ssa 2013 2014

Process for SSA 2013-2014

  • Students who have already qualified for SSA based on the revised criteria have received notification from Central Services. Schools should collect parent notification letters and plan for resources to deliver content.

  • Appropriately place students identified for SSA; plan for delivery of content to qualifying students.

    Two options for placement:

  • Service delivery options are a school-based decision.

    • Face-to-face instruction with an appropriately certified teacher who will teach the course

    • On-line course; the on-line instruction will follow the traditional calendar.

Process for SSA 2013-2014

  • Teachers and/or parents may nominate students for SSA in writing for only one subject. Please include child’s name, area of nomination (either ELA OR Mathematics), and grade level.

  • Schools will determine testing schedule.

  • Schools will schedule and administer the appropriate comprehensive, district benchmark assessment in the ONE area of nomination for the course to be skipped on the following.


Process for ssa 2013 20142

Process for SSA 2013-2014

  • Scores will be reported to Central Services, and the AIG Central Services team will disseminate scores to the schools.

  • AIG teachers will notify parents/students of the results.

  • Students will be placed in the proper class/course within the first ten days of school.

  • AIG teachers will communicate with parents of students who do not meet the criteria.

  • Students will not be accelerated if they transfer to WCPSS after the testing window or nominated after the first five days of school. These students may be nominated for acceleration, but will not complete the process until the 2014-2015 school year.
