CSCSHC announces new criteria for 8th graders to enroll in Algebra I
System User

Click here to see information on criteria for your child to enroll in Algebra I as an 8th grader starting in 2018-19.

Southern Hancock Schools believes that all students should have the opportunity to achieve to the highest of their potential. With this in mind, starting in the 2018-19 school year, all 8th grade students will have the opportunity to take Algebra 1.

Criteria have been created for students to qualify for the 8th grade Algebra 1 course. Students who were identified as High Ability in Mathematics during the 6th grade identification process will automatically qualify.

A second path, created by a committee of parents, teachers, and administrators, contains the following criteria:
? Automatic Qualifier
     - Meets or exceeds a score of 90% on the Algebra Readiness Test given to all 7th graders (early Spring semester)


     - Scores in the 96th percentile on the NWEA Math assessment during the Fall or Winter administration of their 7th grade year.

If a student doesn’t automatically qualify by meeting one of the above criteria, they must meet THREE or more of the following criteria:
     - 85% or higher on the Algebra Readiness Test (early Spring semester)
     - A grade of A or higher in 7th Grade Math during Semester 1
     - 7th grade Fall or Winter NWEA Math score in the 90th percentile or higher
     - 6th grade ISTEP+ Math score of Pass+
     - A teacher recommendation score of 4 in the area of Mathematics

If the student qualifies by either of the above criteria, he or she will have the option of taking Algebra 1 in eighth grade or waiting until ninth grade.
