*Historically Underserved Students Taking Higher Mathematics in the Middle School Date: Nov. 19, 2019. Time: 9am - 3pm. Location: FEA Conference Center. Presenter: George Guy, Principal, Cherry Hill Schools. Target Audience: K-12 Administrators and Teacher-Leaders. Fee: $149.00. This session will explore the use of data, scheduling, professional development, access and equity frameworks, and cultural proficiency in moving historically underserved Grade 6 math students into a higher Grade 7 math class. This acceleration model includes professional development supports for Grade 7 math teachers, scheduling changes that support pre-teaching, interventions, enrichment, and counseling supports for students and parents. This work in the Cherry Hill schools is ongoing. The pilot is now at all three middle schools and it is hoped that the district will graduate more underserved students from Grade 8 who have taken Algebra and who are on their way to Calculus in high school.
