Due April 10th - Class Placement Information

In preparation for the 2023-2024 school year, teachers will soon begin to develop class lists. To do this, teachers use all of the possible information to create classes that are balanced and attempt to meet all of the needs of the individual students. Although we do not allow parents to choose a teacher, we would like you to provide any information that would be helpful in placement (peer relations, learning style, specific needs etc). This is not necessary to complete, but if you would like to share, please complete the form below and submit no later than April 10.

If you know that you will not be returning for the 2023-2024 school year, it is also helpful for us know have this information. Please complete the form below.

As always, this event would not have been possible without your support. We hope everyone had a great night and we will see you next year!

Social Emotional Learning Screening Results Available in SIS

Spring Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Screening Results are now available in SIS. The purpose of this SEL screener is to measure the big picture of the student experience at Lindbergh Schools and identify individual students who may need additional support in the areas of academic, emotional, and social skills.

It is important to note that these surveys provide only a glimpse or snapshot of a student's response on the day when the survey was administered. No data point should ever be used as a sole indicator when determining the needs of students.

To access your student’s SAEBRS results on the SIS Portal:

  1. Log on to the SIS Portal with your username and password.

    1. Note: Your username is your email address on file. If you have forgotten your password, please select “Forgot your parent password?” on the Parent tab.

  2. Under Current Academics (left side menu) - select Assessments. Assessments can only be viewed in a web browser (mobile or desktop) and not the SIS app.

  3. Select the title of the Assessment you want to view.

Attached, please find the Guide to Interpreting SAEBRS Results.
