I was told on two separate occasions from state ed that the In. Alg. Geometry and Math B sequence would not qualify a student to receive an advanced designation. We are on a block schedule and it has hindered our scheduling this semester. By implementing the new math tests in a timely fashion we have limited math opportunities for students because that Alg II/ Trig test is not available in January. It is too bad that state ed. does not take block scheduling into consideration when setting up these rules.

Is there a good place to find the alternatives for the new assessments. SAT scores or AP scores?
Also, can a student take Int Algebra, Geo and Math B? where are the acceptable combinations for the Advanced Diploma?
