Academic acceleration may involve whole-grade or individual subject acceleration. Academic acceleration occurs when a student is not only doing the caliber of work necessary to be promoted to the next grade or enrolled in the next course, but also demonstrates an ability level similar to (or above) that of the students in that next grade level, subject, or course.
Any student, parent/guardian, or staff member may refer a student for evaluation for possible accelerated placement. Referral forms may be obtained/submitted at any building office.
An acceleration evaluation committee will determine whether a student will be permitted to skip a grade level (i.e., whole-grade acceleration), or enroll in a subject at a higher grade level (i.e., subject acceleration). Using a process approved by the Ohio Department of Education, the committee shall be responsible for conducting a fair and thorough evaluation of the student, taking into consideration the student's own thoughts on a possible accelerated placement.
