If you are comfortable with your child enrolling in the "regular" grade-level course listed above for his/her grade level, you do not need to complete the form below, as there is no need for your child to take a math course placement test; your child will be enrolled in his/her grade-level math course (Math 7 for incoming Grade 7 students, Math 8 for incoming Grade 8 students, or Algebra 1 for incoming Grade 9 students).
If you would like your incoming Grade 7, 8, or 9 child to enroll in an accelerated math course as indicated above, please complete this entire form and click "SUBMIT". Please complete a separate form for each child who needs to take a placement test.
In addition to the auto-generated notice you will see after clicking "SUBMIT" confirming that you have completed the form, you will also receive a separate confirmation email within 3 business days from Dave Chamberlain, Capistrano USD Secondary Mathematics Curriculum Specialist.
