Special situation for MS students and math…. • 7 th grade student enrolled in Algebra I: • You will take the Algebra I EOC only. • 8 th grade student enrolled in Math 8 only: • You will take the Math 8 STAAR test. • 8 th grade student enrolled in Algebra I only: • You will take the Algebra I EOC. • 8 th grade student enrolled in Geometry only: • You will take the Math 8 STAAR test and the Geometry final exam. • 8 th grade student enrolled in both Math 8 AND Algebra I: • You will take the Algebra I EOC only.
• Keep in mind… – All YWCPA students are expected to pass ALL state assessments to be promoted within our campus – As a college preparatory campus, we have high expectations for our students!
