We are beginning to have parents asking about making requests for teachers for the upcoming school year. If you will refer to your Student / Parent Handbook, there is information about this process as well as the dates for the proper form to be filled out.
Please note that ALL information must be completed within the proper time frame and on the appropriate form. We try very hard to fill each request. However, it is important to remember that due to many factors, completing a form is NOT A GUARANTEE that your request can be granted.
Finally, please keep in mind that enrollment changes from year to year sometimes make it necessary to move teachers to different grade levels. I will try to announce these changes as early as possible. However, the changes may not be known at the time in the forms are completed.
Below is the excerpt from the school handbook concerning Parent Input for Student / Teacher Placement (Requests) see page 21 .
“If you wish to fill out a form to give input on the type of teacher you would like your child to have for the upcoming 2012-2013 school year, the dates we have selected for this process are April 23-May 18, 2012. If you plan to make a request or give input, it MUST be done on a form. NO REQUESTS will be taken via email or phone for the 2012-2013 school year. The forms will be available in the front office during the time period listed.”
