Winchester Public Schools will design and implement division-wide, comprehensive learning pathways leading to workforce and college-ready graduates. Part of this pathway plan is to implement Math course acceleration when appropriate for our students. We believe that going deeper, instead of faster, is imperative to our students' mastery of Math. Acceleration through the Math standards is a pathway for students who have a sound foundation in Math reasoning and understanding. The following pathways for Advanced Math are attached.
To understand our reasoning and beliefs, we encourage you to read the following articles:

Please note, this pathway is designed for all students - not just our Gifted students. Nor does being gifted in math automatically place students on an advanced pathway.
