Math Course Placement
We are dedicated to placing students into their appropriate math course so that they do not experience unnecessary stress or anxiety. Individual math course placements are determined collaboratively by the teacher and supervisor by a thorough analysis of each child's skill set and performance through multiple points of data. All students will be challenged in the determined math course that best fits their needs. Please view the KPS Math Course Progression Chart below for more information.
Calculators use in our mathematics classrooms is selective and strategic. Please view the document below for an overview of student calculator use at the secondary level to ensure that your child has access to the proper device and that they are using it appropriately.
