Math Appeals Process

Formal Appeal Process for Mathematics Placement

To initiate the appeal process students and/or their families need to complete the online form indicating their wish to appeal the placement decision and the reason for the appeal.

**DEADLINE FOR APPEALS HAS PASSED**

All Appeals must be submitted by MAY 24th.

The Assistant Principal and the Mathematics Learning Area Leader implement the formal appeal process.

  • A self assessment will be presented to the student after the written appeal has been submitted. The self-assessment is designed for the student to self-reflect on his or her long term goals related to mathematics, drive to persevere in challenging tasks, and readiness for the requested placement.
  • An appeals committee comprised of a building administrator, mathematics learning area leader, math teacher, and a school counselor will convene. The committee will review the written appeal, the academic history of the student, student’s self-assessment, and the assessment scores for the NWEA, Orleans Hanna, End of Year Assessment, and NH SAS; and the final course grade.
  • After review of this material the committee will determine whether:
    • The student be afforded the opportunity to reassess on one or more of the placement exams.
      • Reassessment Dates are scheduled for:
      • July 17: 9am - 10:30am & 11:30am - 2pm
      • July 31: 9am - 10:30am & 11:30am - 2pm
