As we approach the final months of school, we will begin the process of placing students in classrooms for the 2017-2018 school year. Student placement at all elementary schools is guided by the following principles:
• Every teacher is dedicated to high academic standards and meeting the learning and social needs of each child.
• Every child’s placement is important and deserves careful consideration.
Classroom teachers, specialists, support staff, and the principal are all part of the placement process. Parent input is important and valued. However, classroom groupings based solely on parent requests can result in unequal class size, and/or classes organized by friendship groups, neighborhoods, sports teams, etc.
• Students benefit from new experiences.
A life lesson for children to learn is that working with a variety of student and teacher personal styles is enriching and helps prepare them to successfully handle new and different experiences.
• Balanced classrooms should reflect our diverse society.
