I am writing with information about the student placement process for the 2019-2020 school year. Teams of teachers will work to create classes that are heterogeneous and as balanced as possible.
Your child’s teacher will work with the other members of the grade level team to create effective instructional groups. They will take into consideration many factors, such as class size, boy/girl ratio, social relationships that work well in the classroom environment, individual learning characteristics and parent input. It is a process that we take very seriously and we work to make the best placement for each child.
As part of this process, we welcome your input. If you wish, you may complete the Placement Information Form and return it to the main office by Tuesday, May 7th. Your comments should include specific information related to your child’s academic priorities and any social-emotional considerations. If you return it, your Placement Information Form will be reviewed by your child’s current teacher. Please do notrequest an individual teacher, as we are unable to honor requests for specific teachers and or classmates. Also, please remind us of any concerns that you may have raised in past years.
As we begin the final stretch, I want to again thank you for another wonderful year with the Sprague community. It is truly a special place. Thank you for supporting our efforts at Sprague.
