Class building for 2015-16
Parent input is due back by May 15, 2015
Class Organization for September

The process of organizing students into classes for the 2015-16 school year will take place at the end of May and beginning of June.  Administration, classroom teachers and Special Education teachers spend many hours forming classes considering factors such as learning styles, gender balance, instructional groupings and the strengths/needs of the students.  To assist us in making our decisions, we collect a wealth of data.  Some of the data we will look at will include reading assessments and levels, report card marks and learning skills.  Our focus will be on the creation of balanced classes based upon instructional groupings and peer compatibility within those learning groups.

If parents would like to provide input for the coming year, it must be in writing before Friday, May 15th, using the attached form, and must include an educational rationale.  It would be very helpful to us to have your perspective regarding the best learning environment for your child, the social and emotional needs that require attention, and how you see your child as a learner.  Please do not request a teacher by name, as class organizations and teaching staff may change right up to the first day of classes as teachers change assignment or move from the school.  We wish to emphasize that classes are developed without teacher names attached at this point.  The information you provide will be considered along with all of the other relevant criteria developed by the school for determining class organization.  A reminder that if you are planning to move out of the Martin Street area before the start of the next school year, please let us know as soon as possible.  Thank you.
Ms. C. Flanagan
