Math Placement Testing

Placement Testing for Incoming 8th Graders:
There is an increased need for flexibility and creativity this year around policies and procedures that we have in place, not only as a district, but as a nation. To this end, the process around math course placement at the high school will reflect the importance for a needed emphasis on students' social emotional well-being by scaling back on the need for placement testing. It is my opinion that this is the most equitable way to ensure that the possibility of placing into an upper level math course at the high school is an opportunity accessible to all during these unprecedented times. Please read the attached letter for more details. Also, please continue to check the website for math resources and programs that may interest you.

Placement Testing for Current CRLS Students:
Current CRLS students wishing to place out of high school math classes will be given the opportunity to do so at the start of the 2020-21 school year. Please continue to check this website for updates and specific dates.

Pre-Calc Placement Testing:
After reaching out and exploring potential summer math preparation programs, the following information has been gathered:
  • Belmont Hill is not offering the same summer program as they have in the past this year, although they are still offering other onine courses that families may find useful.
  • The variation in what other programs will be focused on is vast and does not allow for continuity around expectations.
Hence, it has been decided that there is a need for flexibility and creativity this year around preparation and eligibility for placement testing. The most equitable way to allow for this during these unprecedented times is to allow students and families to decide what is best for their own families and unique situations. So for the 2020 summer, students and their families will be afforded the opportunity to decide on the best way to prepare themselves for all upper level placement tests. Placement testing will begin in either late August or early September. Please check the website for updates.
