Re: urgent question that needs a response

We offer Math 9 and Math 10 courses in which students would take the Algebra Exam in Jan. of their sophomore year. As a result of the cancelling of the Jan. exams now they'll take it in June of the sophomore year. I couldn't imagine most of these students in a regularly paced Algebra and/or Geometry course. Good luck.
Tony George Math Dept. Chair Attica Central School 5855910400 ext 1117 tgeorge@atticacsd.org >>> 01/31/11 2:40 PM >>> Our new Principal has decided that beginning in Sept. 2011, our school will only offer one type of Integrated Algebra Course. 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!!!
Jim
