ELA/SS Honors 7 & 8:
Thank you for your interest in participating in ELA/SS Honors program. RBUSD does not offer 6th grade ELA/SS Honors courses in order to support students' transition from 5th grade to 6th grade.
Sixth and seventh grade students who possess 3 A's by the end of quarter 3 will participate in a diagnostic exam in spring. Students who do not qualify with 3 A's will have the opportunity to opt-in to the exam. Notification will be posted via Principal E-Blast at that time.
Students who pass the diagnostic exam with 80% or better will be scheduled to participate in Honors ELA/SS. They must take both courses to participate. Students that score below 80% on the Honors exam and would still like to participate may opt-in. Notification will be sent home with scores and the opt-in policy via letter during the summer.
Fifth grade students will participate in a diagnostic math exam in the spring and receive score notice during summer. Students who do not pass the diagnostic exam but would still like to participate in Compacted Math 6/7 should contact via email assistant principal, Jason Johnson, after they have received their diagnostic score. Students may not opt into Compacted Math after 6th grade because they would be missing a year's worth of curriculum.
If you have questions about the Honors/Compacted policies, please contact Jason Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
