Examinations for Acceleration, Math Telescoping, Grades K - 7

(Exams to skip a math grade level or math course)

Students currently enrolled in grades K through 7, who meet specific eligibility criteria, may accelerate in math beyond their enrolled grade level or course.  Because the acceleration process involves “skipping” classroom instruction for a grade level or course, students must demonstrate mastery of the math content for which s/he will not receive formal classroom instruction.  Mastery is determined by meeting the district criterion on a state-approved exam chosen by the district.   Students currently in grade K through 5 must score 90% or higher on the state-approved exam for the grade level to be skipped.  Students currently in grade 6 through 7 must score 80% or higher on the state-approved exam for the course to be skipped.
 
The completed registration form and exam fee can either be mailed or delivered to the Director of Accountability & Continuous Improvement, GCISD Administration Building, 3051 Ira E Woods Ave, Grapevine  TX 76051.  The registration form and exam fee must be received at this address by the posted registration deadline.   No registrations will be accepted after the posted registration deadline.
