Transition Information - grade 6 to 7

Attention 6th Grade families-

At this point in the school year we are beginning to plan for student transition to Arcola. Students will be visited in the coming months by Arcola counselors to learn about their student day as well as take a tour of the building. In addition to this, Skyview provides data to Arcola for the course scheduling process. As indicated in previous newsletters, all students at Skyview participated in the Math screening process. In order to assist with course scheduling, Skyview will provide information on the following data points. Students meeting the required data points below will be scheduled for honors level courses in these subject areas for seventh grade.
