Class Placements & Placement Procedures
I know many of you are wondering when you will be able to find out who your child's teacher will be. This will be made available to you on Parent Portal on August 27.
Student Placement Procedures:
Although we appreciate and accept parent input, we do not accept specific requests for teachers. The procedures used to make classroom placements are intentional and focused on each individual student.
1. Teachers create a student profile sheet for each student in his/her class. The profile sheet allows teachers to identify each student’s strengths and needs.
2. A team consisting of the grade level teachers, principal, and other pertinent staff such as the RTI Coordinator, special education personnel, social worker, and/or ELL teacher will meet to place students into classes based on information from the profile sheets, and any additional input. The class lists are constructed so that each class is relatively balanced regarding gender, academic levels, and social/emotional developmental levels.
3. Parents and students will be informed of the placement in August during our registration.
4. All letters/emails requesting a specific teacher will be returned to parents. However, parents may send a letter to the principal describing information regarding their child’s learning style.
Thank you for your time and interest regarding the “Student Placement Procedures”. We are looking forward to using this process and feel confident that each student will be placed in a classroom that will allow him/her to have a successful school year!
