Student Placement Consideration

Parent input is one of many important elements in the complex process of placing students into next year’s classrooms. In June, grade level teacher teams create draft class lists for the upcoming school year. Our goal is to achieve academic, gender, behavior, social, and number balance. Our first priority is balanced classrooms that maximize student learning.

Your input is valued as part of this placement process, however requests for specific teachers are considered but cannot be guaranteed. If you wish to have input, forms may be picked up in the office.
