Placements for 2018-2019
Dear Rosedale Parents and Guardians:
In May our staff will be making class placement decisions for the 2018-2019 school year.
Our staff will make every effort to place students in the best learning environment to promote growth, collaboration and success. We take many factors into account when making class placement decisions including Ministry of Education regulations, English Language Learners, special education, board guidelines, behaviour, classes (split grades), and gender balance. Our teachers, DECEs and Education Assistants know the students well and we rely on their professional decisions and input for placements.
We also appreciate that parents and guardians have valuable information to share with us. Please note, that while we do not accept requests for specific teachers we would like to know about teaching styles, learning preferences and classroom structures that will benefit your child. We want to set up classes that maximize the chances for a wonderful first day of school. When teachers, support staff and administrators get together in May 2018 to make class placement decisions, we plan to use parental input into helping us make the best decision possible. Please note, the final decision for the placement of students at RHPS rests with the Principal and Vice-Principal. It is our hope that with a lot of valuable input, all decisions will have the best interests of each child in mind. If you wish to share input with the school, please email firstname.lastname@example.org any time before May 14 using the subject line “2018-2019 school year”. Mr. Anania will confirm receipt with an email reply.
