    Are you newly enrolling a 7th or 8th Grader to Carroll ISD?
    Carroll ISD has various Pre-AP (Advanced) math courses (see Secondary Math Course Options) for CISD 7th and/or 8th graders who qualify .  Each math course requires a set of prerequisite skills for success. In order for newly enrolled CISD students to qualify for a PAP (Advanced) Middle School Math course, parents will need to provide the following documentation to the middle school campus for proper math placement.  Students coming from each school MUST bring the following:

    In-State Texas Public/Charter

    Out-of-State/Private Schools


    Most recent STAAR Scores*

    Students wanting to test into a CISD PAP (Advanced) Math course will have the opportunity to take a Math Placement Test.


    Please contact the campus counselor for math placement procedures.  

    In order to register for PAP (Advanced) Geometry in 8th grade, parents must provide documentation of High School Algebra 1 credit.  Documentation of HS Algebra 1 credit MUST be a:

    High School Transcript


     Letter from prior school district’s campus/central office stating that Algebra 1 was taken for High School

    *At this time, we understand that STAAR scores and other standardized test scores may not be available from Spring 2020.  Therefore, the academic records for all students enrolling in Carroll ISD will be evaluated on an individual basis to determine the most appropriate 2020-21 mathematics course.  If families wish to accelerate their students beyond what their academic records indicate, additional testing (Credit by Exam) may be required.

    **According to Texas Administrative Code 74.11 (j), students must have passed Pre-Algebra (8th grade math) in order to enroll in Algebra I the following year.

    Students not currently enrolled in Carroll ISD should inquire from their current district about possible Credit by Exam options.  Carroll ISD CANNOT administer a CBE to students not enrolled in CISD.   *Please note: Placement in a course will only occur if the credit is given to the campus before the beginning of a school year, regardless of when a CBE for acceleration is taken.
