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.
Please complete this form if you are interested in having your student complete a math challenge test this summer. If your student is new to the district and needs initial math testing, you may also complete this form. We will email you when we have testing dates and times confirmed. This will likely take place in early and mid-August.
