Swanton Elementary School
Please return to school by May 10, 2017
Dear Parents or Guardians, May 3, 2017
We are beginning the process of placing students in classrooms for the 2017-2018 school year. Our goal is to make balanced classes, which reflect the rich diversity of the Swanton community. Typical factors considered in placement are: instructional level, gender, support needs, students who work well together and students who don’t work well together. Parents and/or guardians are asked to describe what each child enjoys about school, what motivates him or her, what concerns they have about the next year or any other information that you think will be helpful when making class assignments.
To build classes that are balanced for teachers and students, we need information from parents and teachers. Once we have information from input forms, our staff will begin the process of placing students. Administration will do the final review of classroom placements.
Please do not request a specific teacher. Please do tell us on the input form what type of a learning environment will help your child to be successful in school. In addition to providing input on the attached form, parents and/or guardians may meet with guidance counselors to discuss class placement.
Please complete the Parent/Guardian Class Placement Input Form and return it to your child’s teacher or to the principal’s office by May 10, 20172017 Parent Input Letter
