|As we begin looking at classroom assignments for next fall, we strive to provide the best placement possible for all students. Our school philosophy is to promote partnerships with parents in their child’s education. Accordingly, we have identified a policy and practice that is fair and equitable for all in determining placement for each student:
· Balanced classes: using gender, social/emotional needs, class size, academic abilities, learning styles and individual concerns as criteria.
· Class lists are developed by the teaching staff: this includes current year teachers, resource teachers, specialists, counselor and principal.
· Class placement for students in first through fifth grade will be sent home via email the evening of August 24, 2018.
