Student Placement Requests for September 2019

Student Placement for parents to fill out 2019

Placement of students in classes is dependent upon a number of considerations as listed below.   As a staff, we spend many hours and considerable effort to make the best decisions for students to have a successful school year.

In placing students, the following considerations are taken into account:

High Priority

Instructional groupings

Class composition including special needs/requirements

Social/cultural issues (independence, interactions, leadership)

Behavioural/social issues

Diversity in development (academic, social, emotional)

Middle Priority

Groupings in previous years

Dominant grade composition

Physical/social maturation

Learner style

Siblings and relations

Lower Priority


Teacher-learner compatibility

Class size (room to accommodate new students)

** Please note requests for ‘straight’ grades is not an educational reason.

Any requests regarding placement of your child for the upcoming year needs to be in writing to the Principal, Shawn Weeks, by Friday, May 31.  Please use the link above to print off a request sheet.  Please be aware that the teacher assignments identified are subject to change due to enrollment over the summer.

The school staff will take every aspect into consideration when placing students from year to year. Notwithstanding, the opportunity is available for parents to meet with me to discuss placement for the coming year. The final decision regarding student placement rests with the school principal. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

If there are any unique or educationally sound factors you would like taken into consideration when placing your child, please describe them in the space provided.
