It is that time of year when we begin creating our class lists for the coming school year. A great deal of time and effort goes into placing our students in the appropriate classrooms. As we attempt to create an even mix of students in each class, we take into account the number of boys and girls, ability levels, and unique academic needs, as well as pairings that have or have not been successful.
We cannot accept requests for specific teachers. However, you may wish to make us aware of individual needs that can impact your child’s learning that should be considered when making placements. If so, please write a letter to me detailing those needs. The deadline for letters is Monday, May 2, 2016.
We will notify parents of their child’s 2016-2017 classroom placement when we send the final report card home in June. If you see a potential problem with your child’s placement, there will be placement change request forms available in our office when we reopen on August 8th, 2016. Our placement committee will review placement change request forms before the beginning of school.
If you have further questions, please call the school, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
