Class Lists - Pinks & Blues

On Monday, legal sized envelopes and star stickers will be placed in team leaders' boxes to aid in the process of creating class lists. Please indicate special programming on each student's card by placing a red star at the top of their card for students that receive special education services; ESL students gold; TAG students blue; and 504 students green.

Each envelope will be labeled with programming that will be available for each class. For example, Class 1 - ESL & TAG, Class 2 - SPED, etc. Please work with your teams to create class lists based on the needs of the students. Once the classes are created, place the cards in the corresponding envelopes. Class lists are due to Ionnotti by Friday, May 13th. During the week of May 16th, we will meet with teams, special education teachers, specials teachers, and TAG teachers to review the lists and parent input forms.
