The vision of the Franklin Special School District (FSSD) is to provide Excellence in Teaching and Learning for All. Because the FSSD is committed to providing a more deliberate focus on individualized and personalized instructional experiences, the FSSD offers high school credit-bearing Algebra I or world language classes (French or Spanish) for qualifying students in grades 7-8.
If you believe your child has reached a level of proficiency which will make him/her a good candidate for Algebra I or world language in middle school, you may request that he/she take the Iowa Algebra Aptitude Test (IAAT), a standardized measure specifically constructed to indicate mathematics aptitude for Algebra and/or the Modern Language Aptitude Test-Elementary (MLAT-E). Students who meet the IAAT score criteria will become eligible to participate in FSSD’s Algebra I classes in either 7th or 8th grade. Students who meet the MLAT-E score criteria will become eligible to participate in FSSD’s world language classes beginning in 7th grade.
The IAAT and/or MLAT-E test will be administered at Freedom Intermediate School, Freedom Middle School and Poplar Grove Middle School for the 2016-17 school year on Thursday, July 14, 2016. The IAAT Test will be administered at 12:30 p.m. and the MLAT-E will be administered at 2:00 p.m. (NOTE: Students will test at their ZONED SCHOOL on the day of testing.)
