Soon I will be meeting with classroom teachers to develop class placement for next school year. Our classes are balanced based on multiple factors. We do have a parent input card as an avenue for parents to provide input. This is just one piece of the multiple factors that we look at when placing kids. The parent input cards are available in the office.
Information you may want to include on the card: (PLEASE DO NOT REQUEST A SPECIFIC TEACHER)
1. Type of classroom atmosphere that matches your child’s learning style.
2. Special family concerns or other information of which the current teacher is not aware.
3. Students from which your child needs to be separated in which the current teacher is not aware.
The parent input cards are due by Friday, May 15,2015.
