Staffing Changes, Effective 1/10/22, Related to Increased Enrollment
As shared before the winter break, due to increased enrollment, we will be making some staffing changes in grades 2 and 4. Our campus enrollment has grown beyond our current staffing, requiring us to request an additional teacher in 4th grade. We are excited to share that after a detailed and meticulous reorganization, we have opted to make an internal staffing move to fill this vacancy.
We are very aware that creating a new class at the semester break, can be difficult for students. Though we always regret having to change teachers once the school year has started, we know in the long run the smaller class sizes are most conducive to student learning. For these changes, will utilize the same process we used in September when we needed to add a kindergarten teacher. We will reference enrollment dates to determine which classes and students will be impacted.
Teachers will be sending campus communication to families of the students impacted, via email, this evening. Please feel free contact our campus administration if you have any questions regarding this reorganization process.
