Single Subject Acceleration (SSA)
SSA WINDOWS FOR WCPSS
SSA is currently closed for all new students. Any students who will be participating in SSA for the 2017 - 2018 school year were tested and identified during the spring. Please contact Miss Sheehan if you have further questions regarding SSA. Thank you!
What is SSA?
Single Subject Acceleration (SSA) is the practice of assigning a student to a higher-grade level than is typical, given the student's age, for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities. SSA is an accelerative practice that allows students to show mastery of the content of a course without having taken the course.
What is the process for Single Subject Acceleration?
Parents can nominate his/her child to skip a grade level of content in either Language Arts OR Mathematics.
Nomination forms will be available from your child’s school or through the online site listed below during the specified Nomination Windows. (See our dates below!)
Only students who are enrolled and attending WCPSS schools during the previous Nomination and Testing Windows will be eligible to participate in the in SSA during the upcoming school year. Schools will offer differentiation as needed for students entering WCPSS after the SSA deadlines.
Parents may nominate students for this accelerative practice ONLY within our school’s specified nomination window. (See our dates below!)
