2023-2024 Intent Form and Class Placement Input

We are currently in the process of planning for next school year. In doing so, we need to have an accurate count of the number of students who are planning to return to Easley next school year (2023-2024). Accurate student numbers will ensure that we do not lose teaching staff and instructional positions. Thus, your participation in this brief survey is very important! Please complete this survey by Monday, March 6th. Click this link to complete the form.

We have also included a section for you to provide any information you think we need to know about your child when making class placements for next year. Please do not make requests for specific teachers. The only exception is if an older child had a teacher and you would like us to consider placing the sibling with the same teacher, or not. We do our bests to honor sibling requests, but please know there is no guarantee as we have a very involved process for creating classroom rosters.

We will begin the class placement process over break and this is your opportunity to provide input. Requests and input sent via email, after the survey window has closed, may not be received in time to be considered. Please take a few minutes to provide the feedback now. The survey will close on Friday, March 10th. If you have questions, please contact Leah Rubow (for intent information) or Jennifer Hauser (for class placement).
