Information Regarding Student Placement for 2019-2020

Information Regarding Student Placement for 2019-2020

Placement of students in classes is dependent upon a number of considerations. In May, the School-Based Team (SBT) will meet and discuss the class placement of each student. Tentative classes for September 2019 will be created in June, then finalized during the first week of September. The SBT consists of the outgoing and potential receiving classroom teachers, Learning Resource Teacher, and Principal. The SBT looks at the strengths and needs of the children and the team will make decisions based on the following:

High Priority

Instructional groupings

Class composition including special needs/requirements

Social/cultural issues (independence, interactions, leadership)

Behavioural/social issues

Diversity in development (academic, social, emotional)

Middle Priority

Groupings in previous years

Dominant grade composition

Physical/social maturation

Learner style

Siblings and relations

Lower Priority

Friendships

Teacher-learner compatibility

Class size (room to accommodate new students)

Any requests regarding placement of your child for the upcoming year needs to be in writing to the Principal, Corrinne Langston, by May 24thIn some instances, you will be asked to come in for an interview or you may be contacted by phone for more information.  In your letter please identify the educational reason for your request (see above).  The reasons you provide are important as we use them to assist as part of the above criteria in placing your child.  Please make only 1 request per child as in class request, or with a certain student or not, etc. When creating tentative classes, parent requests will be considered. However, we are unable to guarantee that requests can be fulfilled. Please contact Corinne Langston if you have any questions or concerns.
