Class Assignment Process
NRE Class Assignment Process for 2016-2017
In the following weeks, our staff will begin building next year’s class rosters. This communication to parents is to clarify the process for class assignments for the upcoming school year and give parents an opportunity to provide input so we can better address each student's educational experience. We understand that class placement can be a highly personal and often emotional process for our students and their parents, so please know that we will handle this process with respect and integrity, keeping the needs of our students as the first priority.
Class lists will be developed with attention to the following areas, to provide balance in all classrooms and to promote universal student success:
- Heterogeneous academic grouping
- Learning style
- Special needs and/or accommodations
- Social and/or behavioral considerations
- Parental input
Our goal is to assign the best possible placement for each child. Our staff is involved in the class placement process by communicating individual student needs. We also understand that children have unique needs, which you would like us to consider in classroom selection as well. While we do not take specific teacher requests, parents may put their thoughts and considerations about their child into a letter that focuses upon your child’s specific needs. Parents who would like their input considered should submit a letter to me no later than . If you send this message via email, please place “Class Assignment Request” in the Subject line.
Thank you for your support with this process,
