Middle School Compacted Math

In order to meet the needs of advanced learners, all Moore County Schools serving students in grades 6-8 will implement Compacted NC Standard Course of Study Math as approved by the North Carolina State Board of Education and the North Carolina Department of Instruction for qualifying students.

This course compacts four years of math into three by increasing the pace of instruction and allowing students to leave middle school with one high school math credit. The curriculum used for this coursework utilizes the 4:3 model.

The following from NC legislation House Bill 986 will be used by school principals to qualify students eligible for participation in Compacted Math:

"When advanced courses are offered in mathematics, any student scoring a level five on the end-of-grade or end-of-course test for the mathematics course in which the student was most recently enrolled shall be enrolled in the advanced course for the next mathematics course in which the student is enrolled. A student in seventh grade scoring a level five on the seventh grade mathematics end-of-grade test shall be enrolled in a high school level mathematics course in eighth grade. No student who qualifies under this subsection shall be removed from the advanced or high school mathematics course in which the student is enrolled unless a parent or guardian of the student provides written consent for the student to be excluded or removed from that course."

Please discuss your child's eligibility with his/her teacher or school principal.

Also note the following:

  • Moore County Schools will cross reference previous school/state standards and NC Compacted Math standards to determine appropriate placement for any student who transfers into Moore County Schools with an accelerated or compacted math course listed on their transcript.
