Advance Math Requirement 2020-2021

As per MPS’ Grade, Promotion, and Retention 2019-2020:

Placement Criteria for Algebra I: Advanced Level (Grade 7) and Honors (Grade 8)

Algebra readiness is determined by the appropriate score on Scantron/Performance Series (PS). Students desiring to take Algebra I as their seventh-grade mathematics course should achieve a SIP score of at least a 90 or better on PS. Students desiring to take Algebra I as their eighth-grade mathematics course should achieve a SIP score of at least an 80 or better on PS. If the SIP is at most five points below the required PS score, consideration may be given to the student's current cumulative mathematics average, which should be 95 or above for Math 6 students and 85 or above for Math 7 students.

Please Note

If students do not meet these requirements but parents wish for their child to be placed in advance math, parents can sign a waiver.  This waiver overrides MPS’ stipulations but also signifies that parents are aware that students CANNOT change to a lower math class after the start of school.
