Students entering grades one through eight who meet specific eligibility criteria may accelerate in math beyond their enrolled grade level. 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. A student must score at least a 90 percent or higher on the state-approved exam for the grade level math course/grade to be skipped.
Details on the Procedures for Math Telescoping, including the Registration Packet, registration deadlines and testing dates, will be posted on the Advanced Academics Department Page of the GCISD website.
Registration information for students desiring high school course credit by exam for Algebra I, Geometry or Algebra II is located on the Examinations for Acceleration & Credit by Exam page. See the link under Section Contents on the left of this page.
