One option would be to delve into prob, stat, sequence and series aka precalculus and take these out of algebra2/trig.
Another 4th year option might be financial mathematics/algebra or trends, modeling, numeracy, statistics.

Is statistics really the thing that should go? I agree with removing probability, but statistics impacts many other subjects in higher education. I don't know that I would take it out. But perhaps some of the trig could go?

So what can we do??? Who do we speak with?? I taught the course to advanced
10th graders. I moved fast. I can't imagine teaching this way to a regular
student. We need to contact state Ed NOW!! Who do we contact? I don't think
there would be one person in the entire state who wouldn't agree with us! Take
out probability and Statistics..it is that simple!
