OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION




                                                     No. The support class may count as an elective credit, but it
                                                      cannot satisfy the third credit of math. Algebra 1/integrated

                                                     No. Students have the flexibility of taking:

                                                      written district policy, students may enroll in higher level
                                                      classes that meet their high school and beyond plan; in effect,
                                                      they can “skip over” one or more lower level classes. Students
                                                      would still need to earn three math credits toward high school
                                                      graduation. If “skipping over” Algebra 1, students will need to
                                                      obtain credits in geometry, algebra 2 and a third credit that is
