6 6 School Site Placement Criteria & Flexibility Considerations: Mathematics Bear Creek High School Strategic Algebra 9 th graders who were scheduled for High School Algebra High School Algebra Failed Algebra I; minimum sophomore standing Applied Geometry Must have credit for High School Algebra or Algebra I; minimum sophomore standing CAHSEE Intervention All seniors who have not passed CAHSEE as 10 th graders and failed subsequent make-up exams

7 7 School Site Placement Criteria & Flexibility Considerations: Mathematics Lodi High School Strategic Algebra Class not offered High School Algebra Failed Algebra I in middle and high school Applied Geometry F in Algebra I in middle school and high school or weak Algebra I skills coupled with F in Geometry CAHSEE Intervention Failed CAHSEE as 10 th graders and failed subsequent make-up exams

8 8 School Site Placement Criteria & Flexibility Considerations: Mathematics McNair High School Strategic Algebra D or F in 8 th grade Algebra I; will take Algebra I beginning second semester High School Algebra Failed Algebra I twice Applied Geometry 11 th and 12 th graders who need to complete mathematics graduation requirement CAHSEE Intervention Failed CAHSEE as 10 th graders and failed subsequent make-up exams

9 9 School Site Placement Criteria & Flexibility Considerations: Mathematics Tokay High School Strategic Algebra Class not offered High School Algebra 9-12 th graders who have previously failed Algebra I, teacher or counselor recommendation Applied Geometry 9-12 th graders who passed Algebra I with very low scores or grades; High School Algebra or Geometry students who failed CAHSEE Intervention Seniors who have failed CAHSEE as 10 th graders and failed subsequent make-up exams

10 10 School Site Placement Criteria & Flexibility Considerations: Mathematics

11 11 School Site Placement Criteria Non-College Prep Science Bear Creek High School Earth/Physical Science All 9 th graders are placed in a college prep class; some who are in geometry or higher skip the class and are placed in biology Biology All 10 th graders are in a college prep class; some who took the class as 9 th graders are in Chemistry

12 12 School Site Placement Criteria Non-College Prep Science Lodi High School Earth/Physical Science Credit recovery only; teachers are giving extra time to students needing additional support Biology Credit recovery only

13 13 School Site Placement Criteria Non-College Prep Science McNair High School Earth/Physical Science No students are enrolled; all students are placed in college prep earth/physical science Biology No students are enrolled; all students are placed in college prep biology

14 14 School Site Placement Criteria Non-College Prep Science Tokay High School Earth/Physical Science All 9 th graders are placed in a college prep class; non-college prep classes are th graders who either failed the college prep course or came into Lodi USD behind in credits, low GPA, not UC/college-bound at this time Biology Students who failed the college prep course, but had no intention of going to a 4-year college, or whose GPA, etc. would exclude from directly attending a 4-year college
