The impact of the new middle school math placement criteria will take center stage at today's Wake County school board economically disadvantaged student performance task force meeting.
The task force will hear a report on how many middle school students are in advanced math classes this school year based on last week's 20th-day enrollment. The new guidelines, which use EVAAS, are expected to result in an increase in enrollment, especially among black and Hispanic students.
School board member John Tedesco, chairman of the task force, had asked for the totals to see how much the new guidelines are being used. The data is expected to show how many students identified as being ready by EVAAS are in those advanced classes and how many are not.
