High School Classes in Middle School  MATH Classes in Middle School Important Information for Ruckel Middle School students enrolled in Math classes offered for High School Credit.
As a result of decisions made by the State Department of Education, there will be some changes in courses offered for Math High School Credit:
 Students will no longer be allowed to sit in the class and not declare the course for High School credit.
 All students will have until the 4th week of school to opt out of HS credit, however, these students must then transfer out of the course to another math class.
 All classes are being held to the class size amendment, so moving your child’s math course could cause their entire schedule to be changed and there is no guarantee that Adv Math 3 (our version of 8th grade Algebra) would be available.
 Students that remain in the Honors Algebra I will take the State End Of Course test on the computer at the end of the year.
 This test will be 30% of their yearly grade. These students will not take the County EOC for that course.
 Honors Geometry students will take the county EOC this year because there will not be a State EOC for Honors Geometry available.
 Middle School students who receive a final grade of a C or lower in either of these courses will be allowed to repeat the course for
grade forgiveness. This can be done at both the MS and HS level. However, once a child takes the course in the HS, it can only be repeated for a D or an F.
