My son attends a Montessori and only has one teacher for all subjects. Is that ok?
Vynnessa Winberg
36:36
Yes, you would enter their information for all three of those sections. Using your optional eval for another teacher (from last year, maybe) would help give some more perspective

If the student has advanced to precalculus, we should pick "no" in the question if your student enrolled a algebra, right?

You would select yes, because you have taken algebra 1 previously

OK. Thanks.

But the section doesn't offer an "other" option, and it doesn't let me save it if I don't choose one of the states
