Secondary Math Placement
The Board of Education believes that a sound educational program must include the study of subjects that prepare students for admission to higher education and/or a fulfilling career. To the extent possible, district students shall be provided an opportunity to complete a sequence of mathematics courses recommended for admission into the University of California and California State University systems. To that end, PYLUSD has developed assessments that provide multiple data points to ensure that entering 9th-grade students are appropriately placed in mathematics courses at the high school level.
The documents listed below include district policies regarding math placement, a flowchart of high school mathematics courses in sequence, mathematics pathways, and a short video explaining math pathways and placement in the PYLUSD.
If you are new to PYLUSD for the 2019-2020 school year, please register for new student math testing by clicking here.
