Middle School Math Course Placement

  • Saratoga Union School District strives to provide the best possible educational experience for our students. Appropriate math placement is one of the most critical determinations in this process. Academic readiness is fundamental to our course placement philosophy. We desire all of our students to be challenged in their math class, experience a suitable instructional pace, build a strong math foundation so they will be successful as they learn advanced topics beyond middle school, and enjoy mathematics to the greatest extent possible.

    Due to the COVID-19 shelter-in-place mandates in March of 2020, modifications were made to the traditional math placement process going into the 2020-21 school year.  In January 2021, a Math Task Force was convened to study and make recommendations for refinements to the math pathways and placement process for the 2021-2022 school year.  Last spring and fall 2021 the Math Task Force continued their study of the pathways and recommended additional refinements for the 2022-2023 school year.
