All Voke Applications are due by March 1, 2021 to Ms. Lake (Guidance). Applications submitted after March 1st will not be accepted.
Teachers will begin entering reccomendations for accelerated courses in 2021-2022 courses in early February. Reccomendations will be shared with all students and families, and Ms. Lake will meet virtually with all students reccomended for one or more accelerated courses. In 6th and 7th grade, we offer an Accelerated Math course, and in 8th grade, we offer Accelerated ELA, Accelerated SS, Accelerated Science, and Algebra (Accelerated Math). Please see the required prerequisites below. Any student wishing to enroll in an accelerated course, who does not receive a recommendation from their current teacher, will have the opportunity to appeal their class placement later this spring. Appeals are not guaranteed and are dependent on class sizes.
