Pentathlon is the program run in some Texas Middle Schools. If you go to the official Texas AcDec site you can download the Pentathlon manual. That's probably the best place to start. Sue Edwards (s...@txacadec.org) or Shonna DiStefano (shonnad...@hotmail.com) are the people to email if you have questions
There is a program called Academic Pentathlon in CA. LAUSD has not participated in the competition for many years so I can't help you much. You can contact Sharon Nelson in the Orange County Office of Education for information.
