Student Placement for 2015-2016 School Year

Our staff will begin the class building process at the end of April or beginning of May for the 2015-2016 school year.  This is one of our most important tasks to prepare for the upcoming year.  Throughout this process, our goal is to place students in the best possible learning setting for them.  We will try to build classes that are balanced in terms of learning needs and styles, gender, emotional and social development, and academic achievement.

We welcome parent input in this process, as we recognize that parents know their children better than anyone else.  If you would like to offer insight, share your perspective, or express a need on behalf of your child, we invite you to write a letter.  Because it is very difficult to grant requests for specific teachers, we ask that your letter focus on your child’s learning style, significant learning experiences for him/her, and/or the type of teaching style to which your child responds best.  Please do not request a specific teacher. 

We ask that all letters be submitted no later than Friday, May 8, 2015.   We will use the information you provide, along with input from teachers, to place your child in a classroom that will best meet his or her needs.
