Dear NMUSD Parents,

On June 26, 2018, the Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) Board of Education directed staff to consider additional input before making a final recommendation for the District’s Middle and High School Math Course Pathways for the 2018/19 school year.

Based on the Board’s direction, a determination has been made to maintain the current middle and high school math course pathways. An Enhanced Math 7/8 course will continue to be offered to students who earned qualifying scores (80% or better) on the seventh grade Acceleration Determination Point (ADP) Exam. The ADP was administered this past semester to sixth grade students. Notification to families of student results on the ADP and recommended seventh grade math course placement will be mailed to parents by the end of July.

Newly adopted middle school math materials will be utilized in Math 7, Math 8, and Enhanced Math 7/8 courses. Students successfully completing Enhanced Math 7/8 will be placed in Math I as eighth grade students. Traditional and enhanced High School Math I, II, and III pathways will also be maintained for the 2018/19 school year.

While NMUSD will maintain current secondary math pathways for the 2018/19 school year, the District will continue to assess and research instructional practices, materials, and course pathways that will better support all students meeting the expectations of the state standards for mathematics.
