The districtwide priority to increase Grade 5 student enrollment in and successful completion of secondary level mathematics is showing strong results. Student mathematics performance is continually monitored. Proficiency is demonstrated by meeting established standards on local assessments. As a result, acceleration can occur at various times throughout a student's mathematics studies. Overall, 45 percent of last year's Grade 5 students were enrolled in Math A (Math 6) or higher-level mathematics, which includes Math B (Math 7), Math C (Algebra Prep), Investigations into Mathematics (IM), or Algebra 1. During the 2006–2007 school year, 38.9 percent of all Grade 5 students successfully completed Math A or higher-level mathematics (as measured by meeting the proficiency standard on unit assessments).
