Please complete a Parent Input Form for Class Placement for 2019-2020
Class Placement Process-Due May 1, 2019 Desmares Elementary School
The Parent Input Form is designed to gather parent input about your child. You are not required to fill out his form, but are encouraged to do so if you have any information you would like to share. In light of the complexity of the class placement process, requests that name or identify specific teachers, rather than characteristics of an optimal learning environment will not be honored.
The professional staff is very involved in the placement decisions for our students. Your child’s current teacher is involved in the development of class lists. The grade level team meets to discuss the most appropriate placement for each student. Additionally, the Student Support Teachers, Special Education Teachers, Related Arts Teachers, School Counselor and Administrators meet to review class lists and make placement recommendations. The whole team works to form a balance of classroom groupings that are designed to be heterogeneous with a range of abilities. It is our responsibility to balance many factors, to the ultimate benefit of all of our students.
