Potter's class was creating timelines of the planet to segue into the study of human evolution. Seymour High School could be adding more science and math classes to meet new graduation requirements.
Seymour High School Principal Greg Prange knows not every student wants to tackle advanced calculus or chemistry.
That’s one of the reasons why the school plans to alter its course sequencing in math and science and offer new classes next year.
The new classes could include trigonometry, advanced modeling and analysis, finite math, integrated math, chemistry and physics.
The Seymour Community Schools board of trustees recently gave Prange approval to offer the classes as needed to help boost students’ performance on End of Course Assessments, the SAT and ACT, and increase college readiness.
