Single Subject Acceleration Parent Meetings Announced

SSA Parent Information Sessions     
Come join us to learn about this option for acceleration of student learning!
Single Subject Acceleration (SSA) is the practice of assigning a student to a higher-grade level than is typical, given the student's age, for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities.  SSA is an accelerative practice that allows students to show mastery of the content of a course without having taken the course.  For example, a parent could nominate his/her child to skip a grade level of content in either Language Arts OR Mathematics.

What is the process for Single Subject Acceleration?
Parents can get a nomination form from their school or through the online site listed below.  Once nominated, you will be contacted by your school to talk further about the assessment process and the program’s logistics.

How do I learn more?
