**A Recent Chat With the State (High School)**

#### What happened with the Math Essentials / Pre-algebra curriculum outline? We received a draft last year, but never heard anything about finalization.

*What you saw is pretty much where it landed. We’re actually working on redesigning the entirety of course offerings for HS math. I think this particular course took a backseat to the larger project.*

#### Are there any plans for curriculum or other resources related to…

#### Math Essentials (as it was originally developed – as an alternative to Algebra II)?

*No. This course will not exist in the future.*

#### Algebra II?

*Eureka and Spring Board are both Tier 1 options for Algebra II. I anticipate more in the future. The standards are set and will not change for some time.*

#### Algebra III?

*This course code will likely be removed in the future in lieu of a course title more reflective of the work of the course. Again, we are working on a larger HS plan that will address the need for guidance.*

#### Advanced Math / Pre-calculus?

*This one will likely make it through the clean-up with guidance to come shortly thereafter. I envision guidance being in place possibly by the beginning of the 18-19 school year.*

#### Financial Literacy / Business Math?

*I recall course guidance for Financial Literacy being drafted, but I’m not sure where it landed. I imagine guidance is forthcoming. As for a curriculum, I’m not sure. I think there are likely some quality options that currently exist, and I would recommend that districts make that choice locally.*

#### Calculus?

*Our default is AP Calculus. I’m not sure that we will provide guidance for a non-AP Calculus course.*
