The process of developing next year’s class rosters will be underway by the beginning of May. Building equitable grade level sections is important, and many factors are considered when making placement decisions. To the greatest extent possible, classes are balanced with regard to students’ ability, achievement, special needs, gender, and ethnicity. Parents/guardians know their child better than anyone and they’re encouraged to share pertinent insight before teachers are assigned. In addition, a system is in place to enable parents/guardians, with a valid educational reason, to request a specific teacher for their child. Please note the following guidelines if you plan to make such a request.


  • Request forms must be submitted to the building principal before the deadline of March 16. Forms can be obtained from the school office.

  • Only requests involving valid educational reasons will be approved.

  • Parents must provide details about their student’s specific needs along with reasons they believe the requested teacher is uniquely qualified to meet those needs.

  • Determination letters will be mailed to parents.

  • A process is in place to enable parents to appeal denied requests.
