K-5 Student Placement for 2018-2019
As the current school year makes its’ final turn around the track, we begin making plans for next school year (2018-2019) and we would like for you to provide us with information about your child.
The school will be accepting written input (letters) that you would like to provide regarding your child’s placement for the 2018-2019 school year. You may request characteristics of a classroom setting which may best suit your child’s academic, social, and behavior needs. Please do not submit requests for specific teachers. Grade level teaching assignments can change over the summer. In the past, these unexpected situations have forced the school to make teaching assignment changes over the summer time:
• A teacher transferring to another school site
• A teacher receiving a job promotion.
• An unexpected leave of absence.
• A teacher submitting a resignation.
Written input letters must be submitted in a sealed envelope to our elementary front office, to the attention of Assistant Principal Brooke Crandall by the close of the school day, Monday, April 30, 2018. The school will not be accepting letters after this date. Our faculty will meet in cross grade level teams (Kindergarten and first grade, first and second grade, third and fourth grade, and fourth and fifth grade) along with specialists representing administration, guidance, ESE, the arts, and physical education departments.
Student placement consideration will be determined by the Class Size amendment (18:1 K-3, and 22:1 4, 5), achievement, behavior, and diversity. We will share any written input you provide to us with the teams. We assure you that our staff will work as a team putting students' needs first, and your input will be strongly considered, but requests will not be guaranteed. Before the end of the school year a generic grade level materials list will be posted on our school website. You will have an opportunity to meet all the teachers in each grade level at our Tuesday, May 1, 2018 SAC/ Parent University break-out sessions (Jump Up).
In early August, prior to the start of the school year, students and families will be invited to campus to Meet the Teacher, view class lists, review individualized class supply sheets, and tour the school. If you should have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us at 727-547-7697.
