Math Mastery-Based Learning and Credit

The board recognizes the value of preparing students in math for college, career, and life. Math skills are necessary for college and career readiness in multiple disciplines. Students may further develop these skills through independent activities and programs. The district encourages students and their families to take advantage of any math learning opportunities available to them.

 The district will encourage students to use math effectively at a high level of mastery/proficiency. The district acknowledges the importance of allowing students to learn at their own pace, and the educational benefits that can be gained by giving students the opportunity to demonstrate competency of skills, proficiency of standards, and mastery of concepts.

As described in the procedures, the district will award math credits to students based on demonstrated mastery/proficiency across a range of math skills.
