Academic Acceleration and Curriculum Compacting Opportunities
All students learn and progress at different rates and the time it takes to reach academic standards varies among students. Academic acceleration adjusts the pace of instruction to the student’s capabilities, provides an appropriate level of challenge by removing the barriers to accessing appropriately challenging curriculum and reduces the time period necessary for students to complete traditional schooling. Early entrance to kindergarten and or first grade, subject and or whole grade acceleration, and early graduation are options available to students of Sandusky City Schools.
Some classes at the elementary and middle school levels have been designed to compact more than a year’s worth of content into one year of instruction. This instructional strategy is intended to prepare our capable students for successful subject acceleration at a later date and help them to become well-poised to take full advantage of college credit offerings during their high school years.
