D86 Math Pathways Implementation Timeline
Below are three graphics that detail our proposed timeline for developing and implementing our integrated math curriculum. Based on feedback from our teachers, we are recommending that this work be completed over a five-year period so that we can design our program in a deliberate and methodical way that will help ensure that it meets the diverse learning needs of our students.
The first graphic shows when new courses will be introduced and corresponding courses will be phased out. Please note that these efforts are not scheduled to begin until the 2022-23 school year. This means that the students who will be the first to experience these changes are the current seventh graders in our feeder schools. With this in mind, we have provided the other two graphics, which show the courses that current sixth and seventh graders may take in grades 8-12.
During the next two years, our math curriculum teams, in collaboration with teachers from our feeder schools, will develop, write and implement the first courses in the sequence change. They will focus on the remainder of the courses in subsequent years, with the goal of completing the implementation process at the start of the 2024-25 school year.
In the first graphic, we have listed all of the Advanced Placement courses under the 2021-22 column. That is because these courses already exist, and will continue to be offered to all students throughout this process. While the curriculum for these courses is not being rewritten, the development team will spend time during the 2021-22 school year reviewing the College Board curricula for all five courses to ensure there is alignment across the district.
