Math Program Review

When in-person learning returns next school year, Northbrook Junior High students will be following a schedule that increases math instruction minutes.

 The change is one of the outcomes of the Math Program Review. The Math Committee determined that the rigor of math learning standards, three levels of classes, and the student-centered learning model require more time than the current 40-minute per day the junior high math schedule allows. A survey of 21 area junior highs showed that over 60% of  the schools have at least 60 minutes of math instruction per day.

Superintendent Dr. Larry Hewitt created a presentation that was shared with parents on May 8 to provide detail on the decision-making process. View the video below.
