Honors and Math Placement


ELA & SS Honors for 7th & 8th Grade: 

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. 

6th and 7th grade students who wish to opt in to Honors courses can do so in the spring by completing a commitment form. If interested in opting in,  please complete the Google Form (linked below) to enroll your child in the ELA/SS Honors courses.


Compacted Math: 

Fifth grade students will participate in the CAASPP math test in the spring and receive score notice during summer. Students who exceed standards will be placed in Compacted Math 6/7. If your child does not exceed standards and you wish him/her to participate in compacted math, please contact via email assistant principal, Andrew Estrada, after you have received their CAASPP 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 Andrew Estrada at
