Parent/Guardian Input Form for Class Placement 2020-2021

Dear families and friends of Hazeldale,


Staffing for the next school year continues from late Spring and throughout the summer. Therefore, the school is not able to announce the name of teachers assigned to a particular grade level nor announce class rosters prior to August. Therefore, students will find out whom their teacher is through a letter that is mailed home to them the first week that teachers come back to work. Teachers will email his/her class list that same week as well. Be sure our school has your updated email address!


Parents are given the opportunity to provide input to the current teachers of their children on the learning needs of their child. The teachers will use this, as well as their own information to place students in classes for next year. Placement Input Forms are available as a pdf (download from below) or as a GoogleForm Link and are due by Friday, May 22nd.


We do not accept requests for specific teachers. When current teachers place students in classes, they use many factors to create optimal class groups and pair them with teachers. Class groups are balanced by gender as well as strengths and needs of students. Additionally, teachers balance classes by Special Education needs, English as a Second Language needs, and Talented and Gifted needs. Teachers also look at the behavioral needs of students. With all of this considered, we also attempt to balance class groups by size whenever possible.


Please use the Placement Input Form (pdf or GoogleForm) if you would like to ensure that certain factors are considered. I can assure you that teachers take this task very seriously. A great deal of time and effort goes into this process and each child is individually considered and placed. Please contact me with any questions you might have about this very important process.


All placements are final. If you desire input, please use this process.


Sincerely,


Angela Tran

Principal

Remote Learning Phase 3 Schedule Revisions: Furlough Day Plan (Sent by School Messenger to Parents May 13th)

To mitigate some of the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the District will be participating in Oregon’s Work Share program. This participation will result in weekly furlough days of staff each Friday through the end of the school year. To account for these furlough Fridays, the following adjustments to the student, teacher, and service provider weekly work schedule are necessary.


Elementary

Teachers and services providers will continue to use a mix of synchronous and asynchronous interaction during the final month of Remote Learning. With one less day to connect with students each week, teachers will make adjustments to their Monday through Thursday weekly schedules. This may include adjusting their office hours and/or student contact time. Teachers and service providers will not be available virtually, by phone or via email on Fridays for student or parent consultation, to deliver instruction or to provide feedback on student work.


Fridays were also used for student material pick up and for teachers to close classrooms. With the furlough, this day will need to be adjusted. On the day your classroom teacher or service provider is assisting with material pick up or closing their classroom, your child’s teacher or service provider will not be providing office hours or student contact time. Students will still be able to access learning by 8 am. You will be notified of this change in schedule.


Students can continue to use Friday to complete work previously assigned. They also have access to the Art Literacy lessons.


Elementary Special Education

Special Education teachers, case managers, and service providers will continue to follow the four-stage instructional model of I Do, We Do, You Do, and Feedback for the delivery of Specially Designed Instruction and Related Services to students. The only difference is that students will not receive teacher-led or service provider-led instruction, SDI, and/or related services on Fridays. For the purposes of Special Education services, Fridays that are furloughed will be treated in the same manner as a holiday, snow day, or other school closure. Furloughed days will not count as part of the 60-day evaluation timeline.


  • Students who receive daily teacher-led or service provider-led SDI or Related Services will not receive them on Friday and they will not be made up at a later time.
  • Case managers and service providers will review their schedules and work with families to make adjustments as needed to provide weekly/monthly SDI or Related Services Monday-Thursday.
  • Special Education staff will reschedule any Friday IEP meetings to another day of the week.

Elementary English Language Development

Students will not receive instruction or supplemental supports on Fridays. ELD teachers are still expected to collaborate with classroom teachers to align language and content targets during the teacher-led time and to provide supplemental activities to students. Small group check-in will occur from Mondays-Thursdays, especially for newcomer students and students at the emerging level.
