Dear Families of ACE Students:
My how the year has flown! While it seems difficult to imagine, it is time to begin thinking about next year. Attached to this letter, you will find a copy of the student placement policy written and adopted by the ACE SBDM Council. This policy states:
Parent/Guardian input concerning student placement shall be made in writing using the Student Placement Form and received by the principal by the deadline indicated on the form. The Student Placement Policy and form are attached and can be found on the ACE website. Parents/Guardians will have a two week window in which to complete and return the student placement form. In order to keep balanced classrooms based on the following criteria, no specific teacher requests will be entertained. Concerns will be handled on a case by case basis by principal and/or his/her “designee.” The previously stated criteria include:
- Balance of students based upon gender, race, behavior, socio-economic status, and learning styles.
- Balance of students based upon achievement in reading and math and upon enrollment in special programs, including, but not limited to: Quest, ELL and special education. Collaboration needs must be considered.
- Separation of particular students as deemed necessary.
- Number of students in each classroom.
This letter is to inform you the two week window for submitting input begins Tuesday, April 26 and will conclude on Tuesday, May 10, 2016. Please be aware that your child’s homeroom teacher will be using the placement forms in addition to the aforementioned criteria to create class lists for the 2016-17 school year.
We do not allow parents to request their child be placed with another student. We will, however, allow parents to request their child be separated from other students if there is a reasonable, valid concern. If you have an extenuating circumstance beyond these, please put it in writing in a sealed envelope addressed to me no later than May 10, 2016. No late forms will be accepted. Forms not adhering to these guidelines will not be considered.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at 381-4955.
