    5th Grade Accelerated

         The purpose of the 5th grade accelerated class is to provide students with an opportunity to be challenged appropriately in regards to both content and pace. Students in the accelerated 5th grade class will study all of the 5th grade content listed above, but each concept will be taught to a deeper level.  Additionally, students will be exposed to additional enrichment problems to prepare them for the both the pacing and rigor or our most accelerated pathway.  Most students in 5th Grade Accelerated will study Pre-algebra in 6th grade. The factors considered for placement are a combination of standardized measures, curriculum based assessments, and teacher observation. No one factor can successfully determine a student’s most appropriate placement. Each student’s profile is considered carefully to ensure that he/she is placed in the program that will best meet his/her needs academically, emotionally, and socially.  The criteria used to determine a child’s placement in 5th Grade Accelerated Math are listed below.

    Report Card Grades: Trimester grades must be A's or B's.  A minimum of one Trimester with an A.

    Teacher Recommendation: Required

    4th Grade End of Year Test: 90% or higher

    4th Grade Spring Universal screener: 90% or higher

    4th Grade PSSA Score: The PSSA score changes each year to reflect a score that is approximately the top 25% of the 4th grade class.
