Math Information

Senate Bill 359 requires school districts with 8th grades and/or 9th grades to develop, establish, and implement fair, objective and transparent mathematics placement policies that consider multiple objective measures (i.e. California statewide assessments, and student course grades) as the basis for placement and permit multiple checkpoints to assess placement accuracy and student progress, especially at the start of the academic year.
New Haven Board Policy #6152.1, Placement in Mathematics Course describes how the District implements this legislation.
