JRW - 8th Grade Math Honors Requirements 2018-19 (for current non-honors program students)
 
THE RIVERSIDE CAMPUS
Riverside High School – John R. Williams Junior High School
January 24, 2018
 
Dear Parents and Guardians,
 
We look forward to having your child at Riverside next year, and we hope to make the transition to high school an easy one for you and your family. As you work with your child to select courses at the Riverside Campus for the 2018-2019 school year, we would like to provide information for those who would like to enroll in 8th grade Honors Algebra I, but have not previously completed 7th grade Honors Math. It is necessary for your student to complete a mandatory prerequisite course to give them the necessary foundation to be successful in 8th grade Honors Algebra I.
The mandatory prerequisite course will be offered online through K’nections Learning Academy (KLA), which is housed at the Lake County Educational Service Center. The cost to your family will be $210.00. Registration for this course will open February 1, 2018, and your child will have until August 1, 2018 to complete all work. All students who wish to enroll in this course must be registered by April 6, 2018. Students will work from home at their own pace and all questions regarding the course will be answered through the Lake County Educational Service Center. A student must earn at least an 80% average in the course and complete the entire course by the deadline in order to be scheduled for 8th grade Honors Algebra I.
 
When registering for coursework on Infinite Campus for the 2018-2019 school year, please have your child register for Math 801/Math 802. Then, contact Missy Fording or Michelle Hart at the Lake County Educational Service Center in order to register your child for the mandatory perquisite course. Missy or Michelle will be able to assist you in answering questions, setting up an account, and working with the KLA system. Upon completion of the course with an average of at least 80%, the counselors at the Riverside Campus will enroll your child in 8th grade Honors Algebra I. If your child does not register by April 6, 2018, or the coursework is not completed by August 1, 2018 with an 80% average, he or she will not be enrolled in 8th grade Honors Algebra I. The counselor will receive a report of your child’s progress and then schedule them in the appropriate math course for success during the 2018-2019 school year.
