Weekly Update

Pomperaug Elementary School

Class Placement

As we approach the end of the school year, one of our most important responsibilities is to place our children in new classes for next year. Our staff will review the educational needs of every child in order to provide the best instructional placement for all children. It is a complicated process that we take very seriously. Although teachers and other staff have closely observed your child in the classroom environment, each year we give parents an opportunity to share information from a parent’s perspective. If you are interested in providing feedback, please see the attached document for more information about this process.
