We offer a 2year program for our weaker students in Integrated Algebra and a 2year program for them in geometry as well. Many of the weaker students stop after the first year of the 2year geometry program.
I am curiouswhat would you offer the weaker students as their third year of required math?

In other words, there will be no 1.5 year program or 2 year program for Integrated Algebra. By the way, all SPED students are also expected to take the 1 year program. There are absolutely no exceptions! And...the same thing is being done for Geometry as well.
So my question for you is this: Does your school offer only one level of Integrated Algebra for ALL students in the building? What do you think of this plan?
I'm sorry, but I need responses quickly because we are supposed to run next year's schedules later this week.
Thanks in advance!!!
