Ralston Math Pathways and Placement Parent Night
Ralston will present its updated Math pathways and placement criteria to the parent community on Wednesday, February 24.
We will be splitting the evening into two parts. Our first presentation is designed for incoming 6th grade families (current 5th grade) at will begin at 6:30 PM in our Multi-Use room. At 7:45 PM our second presentation will begin. It is designed for next year's 7th and 8th grade families (current 6th and 7th).
Some highlights of the changes include the addition of an accelerated course in the 7th grade (Math 7 CC Advanced Standing) as well as the increased access to acceleration for all students.
I have included the entire slide presentation HERE (incoming 6th) and HERE (incoming 7th and 8th) for you to review. Please take a look at it to see if it relates to any questions or concerns you have.
After the event, we will collect questions and develop a Frequently Asked Questions document for our web page. The presentation will also be available throughout the year in the quick links area of this homepage.
Earlier this spring, our Board of Trustees authorized a new volunteer clearance process, which will improve student safety, reduce volunteer paperwork, and keep our practices in line with other neighboring districts, including the Sequoia Union High School District. Importantly, volunteers who may be unsupervised with students (field trip chaperones, afterschool tutoring and clubs, playground supervision, book fair, etc.) will be required to have fingerprint clearance through the California Department of Justice and the FBI. Fortunately, volunteers will only need to go through the clearance process once for their entire stay in our school district!
Thanks to the partnership of our seven school PTAs, all volunteers who go through the fingerprint process by September 30, 2016, will do so at the District's expense. You can complete the volunteer form online, and if you choose to be cleared for volunteer roles that require fingerprinting, you can print the necessary Live Scan fingerprint form and take it to a designated local vendor during business hours (Mon-Sat).
Thank you for participating in this new process. We're excited that this new approach will enhance student safety while doing away with annual volunteer clearance processes.
Please do not procrastinate. Starting with the 2016-17 school year, all volunteers must complete this process before they are allowed to volunteer. To begin the clearance process, please go to the District's volunteer webpage.
Please send questions to me or the Educational Services Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
