In my district they DO repeat the first year. The only thing I can suggest is to talk to your guidance counselors and see if they can make one section for repeaters only, if that is your concern. For us it works out okay because most of the 9th graders get the idea from watching the repeaters that they don't want to have to do this over and they do what they need to the first time out.

I know that there are a number of schools that offer a two-year Integrated Algebra program for the weaker math students. If a student fails year one of the program, where does that student go for year two? Do you move them on anyway? We have tremendous reluctancy making them repeat year one again, for we do not want to mix "repeaters" with true 9th graders in this instance. Any feedback on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
