Summer Assignment Instructions:
Within the first week of school, all Algebra 2 and Algebra 2 Honors students will be given a readiness assessment to determine their prerequisite knowledge in Algebra 1. If you are enrolled in Algebra 2 Honors, this assessment WILL count as a regular test towards your fall semester grade. Algebra 2 Honors students are expected to be proficient in the topics that appear on this assessment.
If you are enrolled in regular Algebra 2, this assessment WILL NOT count toward your fall semester grade. In regular Algebra 2, it will only be used to identify foundational gaps and to direct instruction in the first few weeks of school.
