1. Implement National Math Panel Report

*inferences*in compliance with California Standards.

2. Press forward with rigor in accordance with the American Diploma Project & Algebra 2 test.

3. Cope with

*bifurcation*of student math achievement by minimizing dropouts.

Implementation

A. Use Singapore Math for K during 2008-9 school year (training must occur during summer).

If this is not achievable, then

**at least one school**must step up to implement.

B.

**Do not choose**any other K-5 texts during the new textbook cycle - unless failure occurs.

C. Use Singapore Math for K-1 during 2009-10, K-2 during 2010-11, . . . .

D. During 2008-9, form a team to refine the Algebra 1/2 curriculum to align with Panel.

E. Start Algebra 1/2 sequence in 2009-10.

F. During 2008-9, form a team to refine Algebra ABCD and Intermediate Algebra to align with the panel and to decrease drop-outs. This may entail technology such as ALEKS and a end-focus on CHSPE prep.

G. Grants may have to be sought to encourage/demand CHSPE participation for IA students.

H. Insure that the CRC obtains a state school code and conducts summer school around the district. Year-round summer school credits must not be issued by EHS, CdM, H, or CM.

I. Summer School needs to be

*for dropout prevention. Classes need to be open for over 60 hours, but only require 60 hours for attendance. More than one teacher can be assigned to a class so that the lead teacher's attendance burden is also minimized.*

**loosely scheduled**
