Math in RTSD
Radnor Township School District undertook a comprehensive review of K-8 math programs and selected Reveal Math to begin using in the 2023-2024 school year. The selection process included research into third-party ratings, review of print and digital materials, vendor presentations, consultations with other school districts, pilots of sample units in K-8 classrooms, and input from the RTSD Math Vertical Team of teachers. Reveal Math meets Ed Reports criteria for alignment with the Common Core Math Standards and usability. It was the clear preference of those teachers who piloted math programs and K-8 math teachers in RTSD overwhelmingly recommended it through the evaluation surveys.
For more information about the selection process, people are invited to watch the recording (starting around minute 51:45) of the K-8 Math Program Recommendation presentation at the April 18, 2023, Curriculum Committee meeting.

RTSD Math Placement Criteria for Fall 2023
Radnor Township School District strives to appropriately challenge and support all students. An important aspect of the RTSD math course placement process is the use of Evidence of Mastery (EoM) assessments based on above-level content to determine readiness for course acceleration. The EoM assessments will be administered in school, following all health and safety protocols.
