Trustees Received an Update on Focus: 2024 Strategic Plan: Algebra I and Geometry Participation in Middle School
Trustees received a presentation on the Algebra I and Geometry participation in middle schools, as part of the Focus: 2024 strategic plan. Highlights included:
- More can be done to develop and support teachers, principals and staff.
- Each year for the past five years, enrollment in Algebra 1 and Geometry has increased, as compared to the percentage of total students enrolled in CCSD. Note: These courses are in a sequence and students need to complete Algebra 1 before taking Geometry.
- For the current school year, underrepresentation exists in African American/ Black and Hispanic / Latino student groups.
- Targets were met for Middle School enrollment in Geometry but not for Middle School enrollment in Algebra 1.
- Staffing gaps in this area are exacerbated by the additional licensure needed to teach math for high school credit.
- All of this has led to a revised Theory of Action (page 11 of the presentation).
