WhichGoesFirst:GeometryAlgebraII

I'm a first year secondary math teacher at a small school.
The mathematical procession here is: Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, and Senior Math.
I think it would be advantageous to the students to learn Geometry before Algebra II. To switch the order, I need statistics proving my thoughts. (Disproving would be welcome as well as I want what's best for my students).
Does anybody out there have any idea where I would find information to prove/disprove my position for the appropriate teaching order?
Thank you,
Mrs. Schu
