Transcript: Brandy Quintero: So students can come in here. And these are all the standards that are going to be covered in 9B. So a student can go in here and say, "You know what; I think I already know this particular standard. I'm going to just like go through and do it." And they thought like the level of knowledge in here. [...] Once they feel like, "Hey, I'll do the Learning Accelerator, I'm good," then they can take the district's proficiency test and they could be done with that learning target. And so that's one option of student voice and choice. We also have like – it's going to look a little different. So when you open up ERWC Module 1, we're going to have the regular English 9 Module 1, and then we're going to have Academy of Engineering's Module 1 and Academy of Health Science Module 1. Now you're still going to have to read a test and a take it. You're still going to have to follow the general steps of it. But because AOE needs to be able to focus on the engineering, their articles are going to be different. Their project choices are going to be different.
